Balsamic Pea and Bacon Salad Recipe

Hello everyone!! Today's recipe is for Balsamic Pea and Bacon Salad! I always loved the pea salad we ate growing up, but this one is ten times better with the balsamic added in! I've been on a HUGE balsamic kick lately, so this fit right in with my balsamic cravings. This is quick to make, especially if you use pre-cooked bacon. Enjoy!!

Balsamic Pea and Bacon Salad (print recipe)

What you need:
1- 16 ounce package frozen green peas
6 strips of bacon, crumbled
1/3 cup onions, finely chopped
1 cup mozzarella, cubed

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
black pepper
1/4 cup sunflower seeds

In a small bowl, combine mayo, balsamic and black pepper.

In a larger bowl, combine all ingredients except sunflower seeds. Mix well. Refrigerate until serving.

Sprinkle sunflower seeds on top before serving!
