I also tried this with chick peas and no sugar or honey. I liked it too.
4 Slices Bacon
¾ Cup Mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 Tablespoon White Sugar (Optional)
Salt And Ground Black Pepper To Taste
1 (20 Ounce) Package Fresh Green Peas
2 Stalks Celery, Chopped
½ Cup Cubed Cheddar Cheese
⅓ Cup Chopped Onion
Step 1 Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels and crumble. Reserve 1 tablespoon bacon grease.
Step 2 Whisk mayonnaise, reserved bacon grease, honey, sugar, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl until dressing is smooth.
Step 3 Mix bacon, peas, celery, Cheddar cheese, and onion together in a bowl. Drizzle dressing over salad and toss to coat. Refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.
