CREAMY GREEN PEA SALAD WITH CHEDDAR CHEESE

This easy pea salad has sweet, crunchy pieces of onions mixed with creamy bites of Cheddar cheese. Growing up, a friend of the family made us this pea salad that we love to this day. It’s just standard stuff: peas, mayonnaise, egg, cheese, and onion. That’s it!

Peas. You either love them or hate them right? I love peas. One of the only veggies I actually like to eat. Even if you don’t like peas, this creamy pea salad is a potluck staple. I have been making some classics here on the blog lately. Ones that I have grown up with and are always at a potluck or family gathering. This creamy pea salad is one of them. It is a southern favorite and really popular. And filled with bacon, it makes it even better!

I love this pea salad because it is so simple to make. I am usually in a hurry to make something quick for a BBQ and that is why I love to make this dish. You just have to add in some thawed peas, bacon, cubed cheese, and red onion and toss it in a creamy mixture. It is ready to go out the door in no time at all.
