Spring Peas. What a great veggie. A good indication that spring is on it’s way. Warmer weather. Sunny days. (Unless you live in Louisiana lately!) and fresh veggies. While these are not from our garden they are my favorite pea. Frozen sweet peas.

This weeks ingredient was chosen by Ellen. And the theme for the next few months is SALADS! My idea!

So I chose a pea salad. I had never made one before or had one I really liked so I decided to make one for our monthly church supper. They seemed to like it. And so did I, but I would make a few changes if I made it again.

The original recipe is from The Pioneer Woman.

1/3 c. sour cream

1 tbsp. 

mayonnaise

Salt and pepper

1 tbsp. white vinegar

4 c. frozen green peas, almost totally thawed

8 slices bacon, cooked until crisp and chopped

1/2 small red onion, halved and sliced very thin

6 oz. cheddar or American cheese, cut into small cubes

3 tbsp. minced fresh parsley

I would make twice the dressing because the noted amount was not enough for the amount of peas. It seemed dry.

I would increase the bacon next time. As Ulrike says, everything is better with bacon.

Other than that the salad was tasty.
