  • Combine cooked peas, cooked and chopped bacon, and chopped pecans in a bowl.
  • In a small bowl, combine mayo and sour cream (or unflavored Greek yogurt or unflavored kefir), mustard, honey (Make sure the honey is softened, warm it up if needed, so it mixes in easily), lemon or lime juice. Whisk the salad dressing ingredients together and taste. Add salt, to taste.
