Green Pea Salad

Ready in 45 minutes

Yummy english pea recipe that could be used as a side dish for pretty much anything!

"My family request this dish so much Im pretty positive I could prepare this blindfolded. I felt I needed to at least add something else to the ingredients to change it up a tiny bit. I simply added about 4 diced hard boiled eggs. It was amazing! I might have to come up with something else to add later because they ask for it even more now."

Love it! I make it as often as I can. Great for an easy quick lunch while on the go at work. Will definitely add the hard boiled eggs in my next batch.

I'm so glad y'all enjoyed it! I've thought about using canned peas but didn't know if doing so would make the salad taste funny. Its good to know you had no problem using them...I'll have to try it now-it's definitely easier :) Thanks for trying my recipe out!

I love this, and so did my boyfriend and daughter! I cook real bacon and cut it up, instead of using bacon bits. And, I used 2 cans of peas instead of frozen. It made a wonderful side dish at dinner. :-)

My local deli makes this with green onions and adds diced water chestnuts for crunch. It is so simple and good.

I absolutely love this recipe! I got it from an older relative and made some adjustments to my taste, but the original included diced celery and chopped up iceberg lettuce for those who would like that. Either way I garuntee will be good.
