Nutcracker Museum

Bavarian Leavenworth, Washington


Several of us have tested a variety of pea salad recipes, and this was the one we liked the very best. And just looking at the recipe wants me to make it again.

16 oz. pkg. frozen baby peas, thawed

1 c. celery, diced

6 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled

1 c. cauliflower, chopped

1 can water chestnuts, drained & chopped

1/2 c. green onions, diced

2 Tbsp. chopped pimento

1 c. almonds, sliced or chopped

1/2 c. sour cream

1 c. ranch dressing

1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 c. cheddar cheese, shredded

Combine vegetables, chestnuts, bacon and nuts. Mix together ranch dressing, sour cream, mustard and garlic. Add cheese and pour over vegetable mix. Toss gently and chill.
