When it comes to salads, it is as always all about the taste. It must be so good that everyone will eat a second or third plate.

Just like when I made salads like this Italian Pasta Salad, the Macaroni Salad, my Black Bean and Corn Salad, or the Southwest Salad – all so good and tasty.

These are a keeper and if you are looking for more Salad Recipes, enjoy more things to make by browsing around.

Why you want to try this Pea Salad

Believe me, the taste and the texture are spot on, but what makes this salad stand out even more is how easy it is to prepare.

You mix it with a dressing, which is creamy and satisfying.

The texture from the peas and scallions really make it over the top amazing and add a nice sharpness plus taste.

Easy to make with step by step instructions and pictures for an amazing result.

Vegan cheddar cubes and scallions are given into a large bowl with peas.

What you need for this Pea Salad recipe:

  • Peas
  • Vegan bacon
  • Olive oil
  • Vegan cheddar
  • Green onions
  • Ranch dressing, prepared

The pre-fried vegan bacon is added to the bowl together with the ranch dressing.

How to make Pea Salad

First, defrost the peas. Really make sure you thaw them completely. You can also cook or steam them, if you like. Mine were done in 3 minutes. Canned peas will work too, but I find frozen ones more delicious.

In a pan heat olive oil, add vegan bacon strips and fry them for around 3 minutes. Set aside.

In a large bowl combine peas with green onions, vegan cheddar, and the fried vegan bacon. Season with a good pinch of salt and pepper. Mix with the ranch dressing. Serve in bowls or on plates.

Leftovers

My Pea Salad can be stored in the fridge for around 3 days.

Make sure to place it in an airtight container.

You can easily make a double batch and keep it in the fridge. A perfect idea for meal prep.

Can I freeze this?

Nope, I definitely do not recommend this.

First the peas have already been frozen, and refreezing them is going to make them loose texture. 

Also the ranch dressing will be get watery, and the whole salad soggy. Something that does not taste good.
