Last night we harvested about a gallon of shelling peas. So this morning I went ahead and made a fresh pea salad with bacon and chives for tonight’s dinner. Not only do I love the daily bounty my garden provides during the summer months, but having a constant supply of fresh ingredients to work with makes dinner time a snap.
Here is my recipe for Fresh Pea Salad with Bacon and Chives. I hope you like it as much as we do.
3 cup fresh peas, shelled
5 strips bacon, cooked, chopped
1/3 cup cheddar cheese, cubed
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoon sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
salt and pepper to taste.
After shelling your peas, blanch them in boiling water for 2 minutes. Place peas in ice cold water to cool. Rinse. Combine remaining ingredients in large bowl and mix together. Refrigerate 2 hours before serving.
