For Adele’s Famous Pea Salad… Recipe finally revealed to public by Charlie Abowd!  ENJOY!
  • 2 cups frozen peas, thawed and rinsed (I recommend Trader Joe’s brand)
  • 1/3 cup sweet red onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup Roma tomatoes, ripe but firm and deseeded (meaning gently squeeze the seeds and use only the tomato meat), chopped
  • 1/3 cup crispy bacon bits (fresh, not pre-fab)
  • 1 1/4 cup sour cream, drained
  • 1 tablespoon lemon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon
  • Sea salt to taste


  • To drain sour cream, pour into a fine strainer. I line my strainer with cheese cloth and then place in the sour cream. Allow excess liquid to drain off for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Place all ingredients except the sour cream in a bowl and gently but thoroughly combine, as we want to avoid mashing the peas. Finally, gently fold in the sour cream. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
