I took this salad to a salad supper last night and I only took home about 1/2 cup. Yes, this was a huge hit. I used cheese cubes instead of shredded cheese but that is the only change I made. Quick, easy, and delicious. What more can I say. Volunteer Field Editor

I love this salad. You can use creamy Italian dressing instead of Ranch.

I love peas and I love bacon. I love sharp cheddar cheese too. I thought this was a winner recipe, but not so much. The flavor was too smoky for me. Will not mke again.

I made this for the first time last week. My older son liked it ok, but my husband and younger son weren't too fond of it. Red onions are a bit strong. Probably won't be making again.

My family doesn’t love ranch dressing so I used half ranch and half mayonnaise. I also added chopped boiled eggs and used it as a meal instead of a side dish. It was a big hit. I will be making it often.

I had bacon-ranch dressing on hand and used that; yum! Out of curiosity, I added a little chopped red pepper to a portion of salad and found that it distracts from the smoky bacon flavor.

Wonderful salad! I add two chopped hard boiled eggs and 1 small chopped red pepper. So good!
