Just like Grandma used to do.
Pea Salad is not something you’ll see at picnics or potlucks all that often. While potato and pasta salads are the most popular choices, it’s important to include pea salad. This classic dish is well-known. You might have eaten it at home with your grandmother or mom. But I believe it’s time for a revival. It’s creamy and sweet with hints of sharp red onions and cubed cheddar cheese. It has every flavor you can imagine and takes only ten minutes to prepare. Although it may seem a bit old-fashioned, it is still a great choice for today’s dinner. It’s not wrong to have a little nostalgia.
10m prep time
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste as needed
4 cups frozen peas, thawed
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 medium red onion, diced
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, cubed small
In a large bowl, whisk together sour cream, mayo, sugar, apple cider vinegar, and salt until combined.
Add peas, bacon, onion, and cheese to bowl and gently stir to coat in dressing.
Chill until ready to serve, but at least 1 hour. Garnish with more crispy bacon if desired before serving. Enjoy!
