Nothing says summer like an outdoor BBQ with friends and family. But no one wants to get stuck in a hot kitchen prepping your side items! So grab some Libby’s® Vegetable Pouches to create delicious, quick nutritious vegetables in a flash and get back to enjoying time with family and friends.  These pouches microwave in less than 60 seconds, meaning no pots, heating containers or lengthy prep time needed.  But even better than that, this recipe doesn’t require you to turn on the oven or microwave at all!

That’s right, this recipe is as simple as cutting up an onion and some cheese and just stirring it all together.  It doesn’t get much easier than that.  Seriously.  It takes the classic recipe and flips it right on its ear.

Now, I’ll admit, I’ve never been a huge sweet pea fan (I blame my great aunt for always making me eat them when I stayed with her), but I honestly love this salad.  Even if you don’t love peas, you have to love bacon and cheese right?

So when you crank up the grill this summer, add a few side dishes to the menu that are quick and easy.  The less time you spend in the kitchen is more time you can spend with your family.  And we all know that’s what it’s really about.  Y’all enjoy!

  1. Yum, I love a good pea salad and this one looks perfect! I haven’t seen those pouches yet.

  2. you had me at bacon….and then cheese! A story: I took my now husband “home” to Illinois to meet my family shortly after our engagement in the fall of 2016. Mom asked what he might like to eat and knowing how he loved the pea salad at a local restaurant suggested it. Mom makes her own yummy version of it. Well, my SIL wondered why my Bama Boy fiance got pea salad so quickly. She had been in the family for 25 years and no one ever made it for HER! It has been a running gag since.

  3. Don Skutt says:

    Do you have to cook the peas first.

  4. Thanks, Don I need to know too…if you microwave the peas? if this is a silly question, I,ve never had pea salad..

  5. Margaret Richardson says:

    I love pea salad and this one looks delish,but am I seeing diced tomatoes or pimentoes not listed?

  6. Joan in VA says:

    Since you said in the comments above the recipe that you didn’t even have to turn on the microwave, I am guessing that the peas in the salad are raw. That doesn’t sound right to me. Please comment and let us (several above me had the same issue) know if the peas need to be cooked before making the salad.

  7. Linda Charles says:

    Why do you need vinegar? I really don’t like vinegar.

  8. Susan E Knell says:

    Hi Stacey,
    I’m getting ready to make the bacon and pea summer salad and couldn’t find the Libby’s sweet peas so I bought birdseye sweet peas. You said to drain the peas, but these are just frozen in the bag. Do you think those will work? Thanks!

  9. Nancy Norris says:

    instead of fresh onions 1/2 cup of French Fried Onions and about 4 oz diced mushrooms

  10. Kimberly FOSTER says:

    How many does this recipe serve?
