Sweet Pea Salad

Eating peas right out of the garden is one of the best parts of my summer.  I only wish that Bill enjoyed eating them as much as I do.  He doesn't dislike them, but they aren't his favorite neither.  Several years ago, I came across a recipe for Pea Salad and adapted it.  Bill will actually eat several helpings of it, so you know it has to be good:)

Judge for yourself...

Sweet Pea Salad

1 (12oz) bag of frozen (or fresh) sweet peas, thawed and drained
1/4 cup of diced onions
1 cup of peanuts or sunflower seeds
1 lb bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1 t sugar
1 T and 1 t of vinegar
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 t soy sauce
1/4 t Worcestershire sauce

Combine the mayo, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce together in a small bowl.  Whisk well.  Add the remainder of the ingredients to another bowl.  Top with the mayo topping and combine well.  Let set in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.
