Italian Pea Salad
Another big winner at the tate-testing party, this salad uses common ingredients in uncommon ways, and the results really hits a home run! The peanuts and bacon join with the dressing to transform a basic idea into a side dish that stands proud!

1/4 cup Kraft Fat Free Italian Dressing
3 cups frozen peas, thawed
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped red onion
