“This is the pea salad everyone begs for at any event or anytime we make it. Easy and so addictive. Most folks are sure there is bacon in the recipe, but there is none needed for the fabulous flavor.”

The smoke-flavored almonds distinguishes this recipe from the many other pea salad variations. Much like bacon, adding smoke or honey flavored almonds to a salad often makes it better, and unquestionably did so in this case. We separately folded in some mayo with a small amount of pea mixture to do a taste test. It tasted okay but we wanted a healthier and lighter tasting dressing than all mayo. We combined 1 part mayo w/ 1 part Greek low-fat plain yogurt which was mixed w/ a little Pinot Grigio Italian wine vinegar (or white vinegar), Dijon mustard, powdered stevia, and salt/white pepper to taste. We very much enjoyed this lighter version pea salad. Thank you PHILHERB.



Tasty and easy! I added more mayo, however.



I think the chopped smoked almonds is a fantastic idea that I will be adding to other salads as well! I also added some grated cheddar and a little red wine vinegar and sugar to the mayo.
