Default Bacon Pea Salad

adapted from TasteofHome.com

This a duck soup simple, hard to miss, super tasty side. It's served cold.
but summer or winter, it's a winner.

in advance, as frying up bacon bit crisps takes time . . .
3 slices thick cut
or
4 slices regular cut
in a small dice.
(~1/4 lb / 115 g) bacon
drain and cool.

then:
2 cups / 8 ounces / 227 g - frozen green peas
turn out into a wide bowl and allow to thaw.
while thawing, add:
1/3 cup / 80 ml - medium chopped red onion
1/2 cup / 120 ml / 2 ounces / 55 g - shredded cheddar cheese
suggestion: double that amount
note: in the pix is "off the block" description pre-shredded cheddar.
imho the cheddar morsels were a bit too big.
use home shred or "normal" shred style.

salt & fresh grind black pepper to taste, approx 1/4 teaspoon / 1.25 ml

when everything is thawed and thoroughly tossed, add and toss through:
~1/2 cup / 120 ml "Ranch Dressing"
refrigerate about two hours.

when ready to serve:
add/stir through the bacon bits.
the mix will keep longer, but the bacon will not stay so crisp.
pix is 24 hrs later from first mix and it was still yummy.

This is a delicious salad, that I've made several times in the summer!

Check out a couple of variations here, Chowder http://www.netcookingtalk.com/forums...ighlight=bacon

I'm glad you posted your photo. I had one, but deleted it.

Thanks!

I've made this with mayo before, but love the idea of ranch dressing.
Yum!
