Old-Timey Pea Salad

Who hasn't gone to a summer time potluck and had a pea salad with chunks of cheese, in a creamy dressing? It really seems like a midwestern delicacy.

I recently bought a bag of fresh English peas with no real intention of using them for anything... they just looked good. It didn't take me long to be transported to time several years ago when I had that old fashioned pea salad... I started to wonder if it could be veganized. Folks, here's my version.

Old-Timey Pea Salad
For the Salad
10 oz fresh English peas
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1 TBS fresh dill
1 1/2 TBS McCormick bac’n pieces
1/2 cup vegan cheese cut up (I used 2 1/2 slices Daiya cheddar cheeze)
For the Dressing
1 TBS apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup tofu sour cream
1 TBS vegan mayo
1/4 tsp salt and pepper
Cover peas in boiling water for 90 seconds, drain and rinse in cold water.
Combine the rest of the salad ingredients.
In separate bowl combine the dressing ingredients.
Mix in the dressing ingredients and fold to combine.

Serve chilled.
