Creamy Pea Salad

This recipe is a nice change from the typical potato or pasta salads. It requires very little cooking - and a little bit of chopping and mixing - it could easily be a no cook recipe if you buy precooked bacon! It doesn't get much easier than that. I prefer Miracle Whip ... my husband likes mayonnaise - so I usually use half of each when I make this salad. 







Creamy Pea Salad
Yield: 8-10 servings

2 pkg. (16 oz. each) frozen peas, thawed and drained
½-1 cup diced Cheddar cheese
½-1 cup diced Mozzarella cheese
1 medium red onion, chopped
1 cup Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
Salt and pepper, to taste
½ lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate until serving.


I hope you enjoy!

  1. This is just my type of salad! Love it, our seasons are a bit confused - we had Winter last week, totally skipped Spring (same last year) and we're right in the middle of Summer already... so, we will have a lot of braais soon. Pinned your recipe, thanks, Jamie!

  2. This looks tasty. I had to see how it differs from the one I have been making for years. They are pretty different, but I like all the ingredients in yours...I'll have to try it next time we have the hankering for pea salad. I am your newest follower. I hope you'll stop by again for a visit and maybe even a follow back. Have a great week!

  13. This looks so good. You could probably just use bacon bits too, for a no cook option. Thanks for sharing on foodie friday!
