I had some peas left over from the Tuna Casserole I made earlier in the week, and I remembered a great recipe for pea and bacon salad . . . only I don't have any bacon, so I'm going to use another cured meat I do have on hand -- pepperoni. This is a very simple and flavorful recipe, another go to side that you can't really screw up.
The ingredients are --
Bacon, or Pepperoni, or Ham, or whatever you've got
Cheese (small cubed or shredded cheddar is good)
Celery (if you have it, I don't)
I microwaved the Pepperoni slices (about 30 seconds -- it doesn't take long) until they were crispy like bacon, then mixed the ingredients together and chilled. I don't even like peas, but I like pea salad!
