Bacon Ranch Pea Salad


We have had this recipe for some time now and for some reason it didn’t get posted.  I believe Mark found it one day when he was hungry and doing his normal food surfing.  I’m not really big on peas but this salad is really good and it doesn’t take a lot of time or money to make.  It is a really good recipe.  See below for notes.


4 slices bacon
1 quart water
1 (16 ounce) package
frozen green peas 1/3 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup Ranch dressing
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar

Place bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat, and cook until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside.
Bring the water to a boil in a pot. Boil the peas 1 minute, until just tender, and drain. Cool peas under cold running water.
In a bowl, toss together bacon, peas, onion, Ranch dressing, and Cheddar cheese. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until chilled before serving.

I used a whole package of ranch dressing and mixed it with about 3/4 cups of mayo.
