Postmodern Pea Salad

This isn’t shockingly different from the dish your mom used to make for potlucks, though by virtue of better-quality ingredients, it tastes better. If you liked this dish as a kid, you’ll love this slightly updated version.

Fresh English peas, shelled and blanched

Chopped sweet onion

shredded Cheddar cheese (the higher the quality, the better)

Bacon Jam or cooked chopped bacon

Ranch salad dressing (I use Lighthouse Jalapeno Ranch)

coarse salt

If using bacon jam, blend thoroughly with salad dressing. Place all ingredients in a bowl with the salad dressing on top, fold gently until ingredients are evenly coated with dressing. Add sea salt to taste and fold gently again.
