I found this recipe many years ago when I was planning a Father's Day party. My dad loved this refreshing crunchy salad so much he's requested it each year since.


  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 4 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. In a bowl, combine peas, bacon, water chestnuts and onions; set aside. Combine all dressing ingredients until smooth; pour over salad and toss to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
