How To Make spring pea salad

  • 1
    In a pot over high heat, bring 2 cups of water to a boil before adding frozen peas. Stir and cook them for 3 to 4 minutes at the most.
  • 2
    Remove from the heat and drain very well. To stop the cooking process, pour in cold water and swirl them around for a few seconds. Drain them and add more cold water, moving them around and draining them again – they need to be at room temperature.
  • 3
    In a medium mixing bowl, add drained peas, carrots, red peppers, celery and radishes. Mix until the ingredients are well combined.
  • 4
    Add ranch dressing to the veggies and stir until everything is well coated.
  • 5
    Add bacon and some fresh chopped dill. Enjoy immediately or chill until ready to serve
