I am never buying peas salad from the grocery store ever again because I have found the perfect recipe that will give me a better result. A simple summer side salad that you’ll be able to enjoy all year round. Creamy with all the goodness of the world. Even my picky eaters love this. This is excellent to bring to potlucks, too as it can easily feed the crowd. And everything with bacon is love. Outrageously delicious, pretty easy, and not fussy. I enjoyed this so much a few hours after because the flavors sink into the ingredients. This is a must-try, a must-have, and to keep.


4 slices bacon
1-quart water
1 (16 oz) package frozen green peas
⅓ cup chopped onions
½ cup Ranch dressing
½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese


Step 1: In a skillet, put the bacon and cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain any excess oil, then, crumble the bacon and set aside.

Step 2: Boil a pot of water. When boiling, add the peas and cook for a minute or until just tender. Drain and allow the peas to cool under running water.

Step 3: Add the bacon, peas, onion, Ranch dressing, and Cheddar cheese in a bowl. Toss and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until the salad is chilled.

Step 4: Serve and enjoy!


1. In my experience, this Bacon Ranch Pea Salad is best after a few hours of making it. Some preferred it the next day. This way, the moisture, and flavors will be absorbed.

2. When preparing this salad ahead, add some extra sour cream, mayo, or ranch dressing before serving.
