Bacon Pea Salad

It’s no surprise to us that sweet peas and crisp bits of bacon are a great combo. After all, they are two opposing tastes and textures that go great together. Now, we won’t deny that a salad can be potentially lackluster if there’s nothing there to jazz it up, which is precisely why we are so excited to bring this unique salad recipe to you! It’s guaranteed to wake up your taste buds and leave everyone at the table arguing over who’s going to get seconds.

Rest assured, you won’t find any mushy, sad peas in this dish! We carefully steamed a frozen bag of them, then cooled them down quickly to keep their gorgeous color and firmness. They taste so good that way! The creamy dressing with toasted pecans for extra crunch can turn just about anyone into a vegetable fan, and the smoky flavor from the bacon sets the whole thing off.
