How To Make Old-School Creamy Pea Salad
There are certain recipes that never fail to bring about a wave of nostalgia for my childhood. Some of those recipes include my grandmother’s tomato sauce, banana bread, and creamy pea salad. Now, if you’ve never had or heard of creamy pea salad before, don’t knock it until you try it. This classic recipe contains a ton of delicious flavors and is a great side dish to make for a crowd.
Creamy pea salad of course contains peas, but it’s also full of crispy bacon, crunchy red onion, and cubes of sharp cheddar cheese. If you’ve ever had a creamy broccoli salad before, this recipe is basically the same idea. The dressing is very similar, made with sour cream, mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, and a hint of sugar.
The best part about this recipe is that it’s so incredibly easy to make. The entire recipe takes less than 10 minutes to whip up, meaning it’s the perfect last-minute addition to a backyard barbecue, potluck, or family gathering. Plus, it’s neither unhealthy or particularly healthy – the best kind of recipe in my opinion!
