We’re finally getting some nice weather in Michigan this weekend! It has me thinking about delicious summer food.

Grilling and summer side dishes!

It’s going to be in the 80’s and sunny so it’s perfect weather.

This classic Pea Salad is a great for a warm weather side dish.

It’s lightened up and WW friendly, but still full of flavor.

For the dressing I used light mayonnaise and fat free sour cream, this helped to reduce the points. I also used reduced fat Mexican cheese.

Whenever I make a dish that has bacon in it I use Oscar Mayer center cut bacon. 4 slices is only 4 points, not bad for bacon!

How to make Pea Salad:

The first thing I did was cooked the bacon. I set it on paper towel to drain the grease and let it cool off then I cut it into small pieces.

In a small bowl I mixed together the light mayonnaise, fat free sour cream, vinegar, salt and pepper.

To a large mixing bowl I added the peas, cheese, red onion, bacon and dressing.

Mix it all together, cover it and put it in the fridge for 2 hours.

That’s it! It really is such an easy side dish.

I always use frozen peas for pea salad, I don’t recommend using canned peas. The frozen peas are so bright and colorful plus they taste better in pea salad.

Just make sure you let the peas thaw before making the salad.
