Sweet Pea Salad

Bacon, peas and golden raisins!  What do they have in common?  This salad! 

 Blog-Pea Salad

Sounds like a strange combination, doesn’t it?  Well, it turns out it is YUMMY and a great way to eat peas.   It’s easy too.  This can be made allergy free or “regular.”  Either way, it works!

Seriously, this is sweet and doesn’t taste like peas at all.  It may just do the trick to getting a kid to eat peas. 

Don’t pass this off as a “weird” dish!  Give it a try!  It’s super delish!  You’ll be glad you did!
