Classic Pea Salad

Pea Salad

Over the years, this has become of my favorite salads that my mom used to make. I still have the recipe written down on an index card, but have since updated it just a bit. Hoping that we will return to a world where there are parties and Summer BBQs soon, I decided to publish this recipe to get everyone thinking about something positive.

The main difference I have seen across recipes is the use of green onions or red onions. I love onions and don’t mind the red onions strong flavor, but if that’s not for you than try green onions. I also have noted that some recipes didn’t include cheddar cheese, but for me that is a key ingredient in the salad. The most important ingredient to me is the water chestnuts. I had a hard time finding these for awhile, so once I did, I stocked up on several cans.

1 Package of Frozen Peas
1 Canned and Cut Water Chestnuts
1/2 Cup Cheddar Cheese
1/4 Cup Red Onion
3 Pieces of Bacon Cooked and Crumbled

1/2 Cup Sour Cream
1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon ACV
1 Tablespoon Sugar
Salt & Pepper
