Refrigerate 1-2 hours before serving. Serve with some leftover shredded cheese and bacon crumbles.
Storing: You can store the leftover pea bacon salad in the fridge for 1-2 days. Do not freeze the leftover salad.
To make ahead: thaw the frozen peas overnight in the fridge and combine all ingredients about 1-2 hours before serving.
Mayonnaise: You can use regular mayonnaise or Miracle Whip. Miracle Whip contains lower calories and fat than mayonnaise, but it's also loaded with processed ingredients like high-fructose syrup and flavor enhancers. For that reason, if you are going to use Miracle Whip, skip the extra seasoning and sugar mentioned in this recipe.
