It seems that every time there is a family or work gathering involving food everyone ask that I bring pea salad. It has become my go-to crowd pleaser, I have to admit, it's a rather tasty salad.
I first had the salad at a work gathering several years ago and I'm not sure who gave me the original recipe, over the years I have made changes. The original recipe used whipping cream and bacon bits, over the years I have omitted both, I no longer ear meat and leaving the cream out makes the salad a bit healthier.
It's crazy how a such a simple and easy salad, brings joy and happiness to so many. Give it a try and change to make it your go-to crowd pleaser.
