June 3, 2011: Pea Salad Recipe

Bookmark and Share

Looking for a cool side dish to serve with your barbecue dishes this summer? A pea salad fits the bill! I’ve had several versions of this before and this one is a good conglomeration of some of the best. Not only does it taste good, but it looks colorful on the plate, too!

I made this version of pea salad without the red onions in deference to my niece Kira's preference.

Pea Salad

1 lb. package frozen green peas, thawed
¼ cup diced red onion
½ cup cubed sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup mayonnaise
¼ cup sweet pickle relish
1 t. dill weed
Salt and pepper to taste
4 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled

Combine all ingredients (up to bacon) in a bowl. Refrigerate for several hours to allow flavors to meld. Just before serving, top with bacon crumbles.

Serves 4 – 6
