  • Place frozen peas in a colander and rinse with cold water to thaw. It doesn't need to thaw completely. Just enough so the peas aren't sticking together. 
  • Place peas in a large bowl and set aside. 
  • Combine mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, salt and pepper in a small bowl. 
  • Add mixture to peas and gently stir with a rubber spatula until well combined. 
  • Gently stir in the crumbled bacon and cheese until combined. 
  • Add more salt and pepper, to taste, if needed. 
  • Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
