  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!

  3. Thanks for the memory Jamie! My mother passed away 32 years ago today and your pea salad reminded me of hers 🙂 Thank you for linking it up at the party this week. I've shared this post on my Facebook page ♥

  5. Hi Jamie,
    Glad to see you left the cheese in the recipe that's what makes it so good. Hope you have a great holiday weekend and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  6. Looks good!! My grandma used to make something like this I always loved it. I can't wait to make your version! Thanks so much for partying with me this week.:)

  7. Stopping by for the first time and enjoyed perusing many of your posts! Sweet place you have here 🙂 I think this recipe sounds so good! I love peas!

    Nice to meet you!
    Kindly, Lorraine

  8. Thanks for sharing a great recipe. I just made the salad as a side dish to sandwich night. Turned out great! Halved the recipe and then halved it again to fit my smaller family still fed 3 people with some leftover in the fridge. Loved the crisp peas and crunchy bacon and creamy cheese – great textures. Used two small shallots instead of red onion as a mellow flavor. Red onions can easily take over a dish. Blogged about this salad. Linked it back to yours. Used my own pictures. Loved the colors in this dish – going to use this recipe all summer long! 🙂

  9. Just saw this as link on Garlic-Herb Cheese Bombs recipe.
    Mom made Pea Salad with peas (canned in pre-frozen box days, and fresh blanched if she had them), diced apple, very thinly sliced celery, very small cubes of cheese, if time permitted, coursely if not, sliced green onion tops, and the same dressing.

  10. Jamie. I have a very similar recipe that includes lettuce that you layer with the rest of the ingredients. I am so excited about your recipe because the lettuce would tend to wilt and I did not care for that. I know that your recipe will be yummy. Putting this on my menu for next week! Thank you for sharing. Nancy P

  11. I remember having a wilted lettuce salad when I was growing up and I was never really a fan of it either! I hope you enjoy this Creamy Pea Salad – it's one of my family's favorites! 🙂

  12. If you don't like peas, try broccoli instead – works great.
    You can also thin the mayo with a bit of cider vinegar & sugar if you'd like a little more sweetness in the dressing.

  13. Yes yes yes…. The only thing I need to say is that I always use the BABY PEAS. It really does make a difference. And for a bit of a change, use diced ham for the bacon.

  14. I made this today and it brought back of memories of sitting at my grandmas table on Sunday!! Thanks for the recipe as it is the closest one I have found to match what my grandma made. My husband had never had and loves it.
