Pea Salad with Cashews and Bacon

The first time I tried this Pea Salad with Cashews and Bacon, I was a little apprehensive.  Peas as the main ingredient in a salad just seemed a little strange to me, but I loved it!

I think of it as a springtime dish, and often serve it with our Easter meal.  For me, the hardest part is not eating all of the bacon before I finish. I don’t always use all of the sour cream/mayonnaise mixture, so I recommend adding it gradually rather than all at once.  And of course, extra bacon is always a good idea!

I like to add the bacon and cashews just before serving so they don’t get soggy.  For the same reason, this doesn’t make for great leftovers, but you probably won’t have any! This salad is perfect for potlucks, neighborhood gatherings and backyard barbecues. And once people try it, expect plenty of requests for the recipe.

Who Dished It Up First: My mom used to make this recipe.  I believe she found it in a cookbook put out by the women’s organization of our local church congregation.

  1. I love pea salad and yours is quite different than the one I make. I like the addition of cashews and bacon.
