Spring Bacon and Pea Salad

I have been making this salad for
spring and summer for a while.
I associate it with spring because of the colors of the peas.
Bright green!
If you would like to slim down this recipe you can substitute Canadian
Bacon for the bacon. You could also use Greek yogurt for 1/2 of the mayo.
Enjoy
