This is such a simple salad and yet it taste to wonderful. It rounds out an meal nicely. It's my moms broccoli salad recipe adapted for my non broccoli eating husband. The sweet peas and crunchy romaine were great together. This recipe doubled easily or can be cut in half just as easily.
This salad can be made in advance. Just throw everything together except for the romaine, it' will get soggy and limp in the dressing. Slice and store separately, just stir in right before serving.
12 oz. frozen peas, thawed
1 heart of romaine, very thinly sliced
1/4 c. real bacon bits
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 red onion, chopped
2 carrots, grated
3/4 c. mayo
2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. sugar
Dash black pepper
Salt to taste
Whisk together the mayo, vinegar, and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
Stir in remaining ingredients. Chill for 30 minutes.
