Creamy Pea Salad with Bacon – green peas, cheddar, red onion and bacon tossed with light Ranch dressing. Great summer side dish for potlucks!
The under-rated green peas get a center stage in summer’s favorite side dish! This Creamy Pea Salad is a great way to enjoy them, paired with cheese, bacon and creamy dressing. It’s perfect served cold with BBQ meat, sandwiches or mixed with cooked pasta for a great lunch salad.
This Creamy Pea Salad with Bacon is a crowd-pleaser and can be made a day ahead. If you are worried about the onion overwhelming the dish, simply store it separately and add just before serving. I used my favorite creamy dressing recipe from the BLT Pasta Salad. It’s perfect!
