Préparations :

Prepare the Peas: If you’re using frozen peas, thaw them by running them under cold water in a colander. Drain well and set aside.

  1. Chop Vegetables: Finely chop the red onion and celery. You can adjust the quantities according to your taste preferences.
  2. Mix Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream or Greek yogurt, white vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper until well combined. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  3. Combine Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the thawed peas, chopped red onion, chopped celery, and shredded cheddar cheese.
  4. Add Dressing: Pour the dressing over the pea mixture and toss gently until everything is evenly coated.
  5. Chill: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or transfer the salad to a sealed container and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld together.
  6. Serve: Before serving, give the salad a final toss to ensure the dressing is evenly distributed. If desired, garnish with crispy bacon bits, chopped hard-boiled eggs, or diced ham for extra flavor and texture.
