For years, I have seen a version of this Skinny Pea Salad Recipe on buffet tables at potlucks. There is just something about this that screams summer and barbecue events. Personally, I am not a big fan of peas, but my friend Kari from Craft Create Cook made this for me since I knew many of you would love it. It's a great way to create a point friendly salad that fits into any dietary plan.

This skinny pea salad recipe is a classic that most love. Since peas are now a zero point food on Weight Watchers FreeStyle it is definitely even more popular. Using things like mayonnaise, bacon, and cheese can add points, but they are well worth it for this recipe.
Recommendations: Kari shared two products that really make this easier to manage. When cutting onions, she uses an Onion Holder for Slicing. This is a great inexpensive option to help make those even cuts and keep your fingers safe. When cutting blocks of cheese for salads like this one, she uses this vegetable or cheese slicer. It makes it much easier to get even slices and takes less time. Another great option is this Pro Vegetable Chopper.
