Tangy Bacon Cheddar Pea Salad

Tangy Bacon Cheddar Pea Salad
I always loved a Tangy Pea Salad when I was growing up. All the sweet peas that burst open with every bite are a summer staple to me..

My kids not so much.. They love the peas and tangy dressing, but would be ok without the rest. I should have made them a deconstructed Pea Salad, with Bacon and Cheddar optional.. One picked out all the bacon, and another the cheddar cheese cubes..lol..

I always use frozen sweet peas to make pea salad, since they always retain their shape so nicely, with a soft creamy center.  I made my dressing a little lighter using non-fat greek yogurt. I prefer to make Tangy Bacon Cheddar Pea Salad a few hours in advance to allow the flavors to mingle in the fridge.

There's probably a million different Pea Salad recipes, but here's how I made the recipe:


Tangy Bacon Cheddar Pea Salad dressing.
In a small bowl whisk together 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt, 2 tablespoons Sugar, 2 tablespoons White Wine Vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon Granulated Garlic, until well combined.
Tangy Bacon Cheddar Pea Salad
Allow 16 ounces Frozen Sweet Peas to thaw. Add 1 cup Cubed Cheddar Cheese, 4 slices Cooked Chopped Bacon, and 2 tablespoons Chopped Parley.
Tangy Bacon Cheddar Pea Salad
Add 1/4 cup Chopped Jarred Roasted Red Peppers, and 1/4 cup Chopped Red Bell Pepper.
Tangy Bacon Cheddar Pea Salad
Toss with dressing, and refrigerate for a minimum of an hour to allow the flavors to mingle.
