English Pea Salad Recipe

Creamy Bacon Pea Salad {Low Carb}

When I  was making my first attempt at Creamy Bacon Pea Salad, I thought — Yeah Right, this might be something I’d LOVE but Ray (my hubby) certainly isn’t going to like it. Ray doesn’t love peas, he tolerates them on occasion, preferably only fresh from our garden….

HOWEVER after taking just a few bites of my delicious creamy pea-filled salad,  he proclaimed “I wish my mom made peas like this when I was little, this is awesome!”

I’ve made it 3 times since I first came up with the recipe – and will probably make up another batch this weekend!

And now Ray loves peas…. well peas in my Creamy Bacon Pea Salad – but I’ll take it.

Similiar to Potato/Macaroni Salad – only lower in carbs and more nutritious with peas in place of the starch  and FULL of healthy fats & protein from pasture raised eggs, raw cheddar cheese, avocado-oil mayonnaise and BACON!

Lots of bacon.

Everything is better with BACON – Right???

And when I got some amazing Bacon from Butcher Box this month (in addition to grass fed sirloin steaks & ground beef) I immediately knew that I needed to create something where the bacon could SING – where it was featured and could be appreciated in a unique way.

and my Creamy Bacon Pea Salad – is the perfect way elevate plain ingredients with a POP of bacon-y deliciousness.

    So. This was really, REALLY good. And from ingredients most people probably have on hand. Just as good, or better, than potato or macaroni salad.

    That said – I do have a bone to pick, lol, it is NOT low carb by any stretch of the imagination. I eat a ketogenic diet. I saw the low carb label and didn’t even think twice, I made this Sunday. Ate it all by Monday night and made more Tuesday. I should’ve recognized the telltale “too carby eating craving cycle” but I didn’t and kept on eating until it dawned on me I was suddenly craving ice cream and chips and cereal and all sorts of starchy stuff. So I looked it up – how I never realized peas are right up there with potatoes in terms of starchy carbs I don’t know. But maybe you didn’t either 😛 So I’m posting to share. It’s an excellent tasting recipe, I LOVE it. But…it’s definitely not low carb.

    1. it’s not Keto-Friendly but it is LOW CARB, I’m sorry that it was confusing to you. Generally speaking a low carb diet is <100g carbs a day. I'm glad you enjoyed it but it's imperative that you calculate your carbs for everything during Keto, not just eat low-carb.

      1. This recipe yields 4 servings, with 20g carbs and 6g fiber for 14g Net Carbs per serving.
