Pea Salad


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound frozen peas (do not thaw)
  • 1/2 small red onion, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced (1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 4 ounces bacon (about 4 slices), chopped
  • 2 ounces aged white cheddar, shaved or coarsely grated

Instructions

  1. Whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, and vinegar in a large bowl; season generously with salt and pepper. Fold in peas, onion, and parsley. Refrigerate at least 4 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until browned and fat is rendered, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain and crisp.
  3. Let salad stand at room temperature for 10 minutes. Gently fold in cheddar and bacon just before serving.
