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.

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.

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 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.
