Ingredients

  • 1 10- ounce package frozen green peas thawed and drained {may thaw the night before}
  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onions
  • 6 slices bacon cooked until crispy & crumbled
  • 1/2 cup salted peanut halves

Instructions

  • Cook bacon in skillet until crispy. Or, layer on a microwave safe dish with paper towels, and cook for 4-6 minutes on high power, or until well-cooked. Allow to cool, then crumble and set aside in a small bowl.
  • Dice onions.
  • Place thawed peas in a mixing bowl. Add Greek yogurt, diced onions, bacon, and peanuts to peas, and mix until well combined. Place mixture in refrigerator to chill before serving.

Notes

I didn't add any salt or pepper to the salad since the bacon and peanuts are salted, but you may add a little salt and pepper if you wish.
