Pea and Peanut Salad with Bacon and Beans

I don't make a lot of peas. The husband doesn't like peas so I just avoid them.  I couldn't resist this though when I saw the recipe.

Hubs works some evenings so I just waited until then. I don't think he even knew it existed in the house.   

I, of course, added a can of beans, to up the protein.  Oh and the bacon was oh so good in this. Bacon truly does make everything better. 

I ate this the first day on a corn tortilla as a wrap.  Then the leftovers I ate with a bit of lettuce, just as a salad.  Both were awesome and I'll make it again. When the husband works of course.  :-)

  6. I love peanut and peanut flavors. This looks so yummy! My husband probably wouldn't like it I'd just have to eat it all myself. :)
