Green Pea Salad

I'll admit it.  My name is Candi and I hate peas.  Canned peas, frozen peas, fresh peas.  Ewww...But my hubby and our Little Devil like them.  So occasionally I throw them a bone and actually fix something they like.  It's a simple salad, with lots of good flavors (except the peas) but those are disguised easily enough by lots of Parmesan cheese and bacon.  For those of you that like peas, the flavor isn't disguised.  By disguised I meant I pushed them to the other side of my plate and left them there for the dog.  Never fear Pea Lovers, you will enjoy this salad very much!  Don't let my disdain for peas discourage you.
Crisp and Delicious.  And full of peas. 
Which is great if you LIKE them.
The line up
Combine lettuce, peas, celery and red onion.
Don't forget the Parmesan. 
In a separate bowl, whisk together
Miracle Whip and sugar.
Add the bacon which has been cooked and
crumbled.  Toss all ingredients to combine.
Add salad dressing and toss until well coated.
Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.

  1. I loathe peas. I always eat them though (only the frozen ones, can't be in the room with an open can of peas without gagging) but I swallow them like pills with water. It's not only the smell, it's that popping texture!! EW!! Great looking salad though...for those pea lovers out there!! ;)
