This Pea, Peanut and Bacon Salad recipe is incredibly easy – you can add / leave out bacon and cheese or include any other tasty items you think will go nicely in it. Ideally served with cold chicken and a glass of crisp white wine, but you can serve it with whatever takes your fancy.
Ingredients (6-8 servings):
16oz bag frozen peas
2 cups of lightly salted peanuts
3oz bag of real bacon bits or about 4 slices of bacon cooked and cut up in to pieces
(if adding cheese, as in the title picture, add about 1 cup of grated cheddar)
½ cup sour cream
4 tbsp mayonaise
1 tsp white fine grain sugar
salt and pepper to taste
In a large bowl, put the peas, peanuts, bacon and cheese (if adding)
In a small bowl or jug mix together all the ingredients for the dressing, add salt and pepper to taste
Pour dressing on top of the pea mixure and stir to combine really well
Leave until the peas have defrosted and then serve or put in an air-tight container in the fridge until needed
