    Pea/Cheddar Salad

    Summer will soon be upon us and you know what that means, barbeques and picnics. Here is a quick salad that I’m sure you and your friends will enjoy all season long.

    You will need:

    Baby Sweet Peas — 1 LB – frozen is good make sure they are baby which are smaller in size but also tend to be sweeter.
    Sweet Onion — Half of a medium size (about ½ cup) use Walla Walla, Vidalia or other sweet variety – fine dice.
    Celery — two or three ribs (about &#189 cup) fine dice.
    Cheddar Cheese — finely grated to equal the volume of the peas, approximately 1 cup
    Sour Cream — ½ cup
    Mayonaise — ½ cup
    Apple Cider Vinegar — two TBSP – you can add more or use less depending one your taste for the rich tart flavor of a good apple cider vinegar.
    Sea Salt/Pepper — to taste.
    Bacon — thick cut, cooked then finely diced, can be left out if you want a vegetarian version.

    In a bowl large enough to hold ingredients mix mayonaise, sour cream, vinegar, salt and pepper whisk to combine, taste and adjust as needed. The final product should be loose enough to pour over the peas if it is too thick just add a little water to adjust. In another bowl large enough to hold all of the ingredients combine peas, celery and onion stir to combine. Pour the sour cream/mayo/vinegar mixture over the peas combination and stir to combine. Taste once more and adjust salt/pepper if needed then add bacon bits and stir once more. Enjoy!
