Pea Salad with Bacon and Red Peppers -aka Christmas Pea Salad

This Pea Salad with Bacon and Red Peppers is a very pretty side dish. My addition was adding the red peppers for the holidays so I could call it Christmas Pea Salad, I just didn't get it posted earlier for some reason. And of course, this is a nice side dish any time of year, with or without the peppers. It also calls for some basic pantry ingredients or things we generally have on-hand, ya gotta love that! So if you're looking for a new recipe to try, it's kind of hard to go wrong with this one folks:@)

Christmas Pea Salad (Pea Salad with Bacon and Red Peppers)-adapted from Taste of Home
4 C frozen peas, thawed-approx 16 oz
1/2 C shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 C ranch dressing
1/3 C onion, chopped-red or yellow onion
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 slices bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled
  1. Mix everything except bacon. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
  2. Stir in bacon right before serving.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)


  1. So pretty with the red peppers and bacon Lynn! It reminds me of a salad my MIL used make using broccoli. ♥

  2. Lynn, this is a different type of salad that looks so good and I bet tastes delicious. Thanks for the recipe.

  3. I'm not much on peas, but paired with bacon and cheese I might change my mind 😂!

  4. This looks delicious and reminds me of the old 7-Layer salad recipe with peas, lettuce, bacon, cheese, etc. I used to LOVE those!

  5. This pea salad is just what I need for a side dish, so thank you, I am going to make it for Christmas. The day before.

    1. Hello, I've never made it that far in advance, just earlier in the day. Be sure to add the bacon right before serving. Merry Christmas:@)
