Simple Pea and Crème Fraîche Salad with Bacon

 

This salad is a wonderful combination of fresh, meaty, and rich flavors. You can make it in the spring with fresh peas from the garden, but frozen peas are a good stand-in.


Ingredients

  • 2 pounds frozen peas
  • 4 ounces thick-sliced bacon (not maple)
  • 1 bunch whole scallions, chopped
  • 1/3 cup crème fraîche or sour cream
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • Salt and pepper


Instructions

  1. Cook frozen peas according to package directions, until just cooked through and tender. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  2. Fry bacon over low heat in a cast-iron skillet. Remove to cool. Fry the scallions for just a couple of minutes in the bacon grease. Remove and allow to cool.
  3. Toss peas, cooked bacon, scallions, crème fraîche, and lemon zest in a bowl with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.


Serve at room temperature.
