This is an old standby I've served as a side dish for years at potlucks and gatherings. I have also stuffed the pea mixture into cherry tomato shells (minus the tomato in the ingredient list!) as an appetizer. Enjoy!
Place peas in a bowl, adding sour cream, diced vegetables, bacon, cashews and seasonings. Small cubes of cheddar cheese can also be added if desired. Do not add salt until salad has been rechilled, because after flavors meld salt from cashews may be enough.
