This easy Creamy Pea Salad Recipe is one of our favorite side dishes. It combines sweet peas, crispy bacon, red onion, and cheddar cheese cubes in a creamy dressing. The slight crunch and saltiness from the bacon really adds texture and flavor to this salad. This tasty salad comes together in less than ten minutes, and it is a favorite at family reunions, potlucks, barbecues, and picnics.

Calling all pea lovers. This salad is such a tasty combination and so incredibly easy to make and a nice change from potato salad or pasta salad. The only thing you really need to do in advance is to defrost the peas. You don’t have to cook them as frozen peas are already blanched to kill any enzymes.

Frozen peas have already been blanched. All you need to do is thaw them for a salad. The easiest way to do this is in the fridge for about 24 hours, but if you have forgotten to take the peas out of the freezer and company is on their way. No worries simply use the shower option on the kitchen sink and spray the frozen peas with cool water in a colander letting the excess water drain down the sink. It may take up to ten minutes, and you will want to let the excess water drain for a while. Shake the colander gently to drain all the water out.

Substitute hard-boiled eggs for the bacon, or better yet, just add them. You will love the added protein and creaminess. I have found that the best way to hard-boil eggs is to steam them. The water should be boiling, and the steam should be present before adding the eggs. Steam 15 minutes for large eggs and plunge into ice-cold water.
