salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 (20 ounce) package
fresh green peas
cubed Cheddar cheese
Wow this is really good. I made exactly as written with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper for half a recipe. Oh...except I used frozen peas that i rinsed under cold water and let drain really well. I served really cold and I wouldn't change a thing. Maybe experiment with cheese as I think pepper jack might be really good but as is with mild cheddar it is yum yum tasty, and something different. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
This was Delicious. I only used 2 slices of bacon and added 2 hard boiled eggs chopped and it was great. next time I will add more celery for some extra crunch. Thanks for the recipe.
This pea salad was delicious! I made the recipe as directed without making any changes. This will become my go-to recipe for pea salad in the future.
Had originally planned on making tuna salad and had already boiled the pasta when I realized-out of tuna. I found this doing an ingredient search for peas and bacon. So I easily adapted it into a pasta salad. I had already chopped some pickles and carrots so I threw those in. I ended up using only 1/2 c of peas. Turned out great. I agree with other reviewers to wait until the end to add the bacon. Quick, easy, and budget friendly. Served with cheeseburgers and potato chips. Looking forward to taking leftovers for lunch tomorrow
Wow this is great. I recommend not adding the cheese and bacon until right before serving to prevent getting soggy. I took this in my lunch for four days and it held up well.
This salad was my aunt's go-to at summer picnics. I was so excited to find this recipe. The first batch came out sweeter than I like, so I cut back on the sugar to taste in my next batch and used scallions instead of onions. The bacon grease adds a wonderful smokiness. I have now made it several times since for friends and family with rave reviews.
