This Pea Salad With Bacon and Cheddar Cheese is a quick and easy-to-make side dish. It makes a great addition to any barbeque or potluck.
There are many versions of Pea Salad, this one with Bacon and Cheddar is my personal favorite. With mayonnaise and sour cream-based dressing with apple cider vinegar and dill weed to make it a little bit tangy. People love this cold salad and it is usually a big hit. However, if you aren't a fan of peas, some other great options are The Best Orange Jello Fluff, The Best Cherry Pineapple Fluff, or Easy Broccoli Salad With Raisins and Nuts.
This classic side dish goes great with almost any meal. Try it with Shredded Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches ( Easy Crockpot Recipe) or Pulled Pork BBQ in the Crockpot. It is a great way to get kids to eat veggies, even if they don't like regular peas they may like this.
Yes, they could be but in my opinion, they wouldn't be nearly as good. I think they would get mushy easily.
If you don't like or can't eat mayonnaise, ranch dressing is also very good for the dressing.
Yes, you could substitute Turkey Bacon if you don't eat pork. Bacon could be completely eliminated to make it vegetarian-friendly.
This salad will keep in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
