ingredients
2 (6 oz.) packages Jones Dairy Farm Canadian Bacon, diced
1 pound frozen peas, thawed
1/2 cup celery, diced
2 green onions, thinly sliced including the green portion
1/2 cup sweet peppers, diced 
3 eggs, hard-boiled, peeled and diced 
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup heavy mayonnaise
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dill weed 
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/3 – 1/2 cup buttermilk
DIRECTIONS
Place the Canadian Bacon, peas, celery, onion, peppers, eggs and cheese in large mixing bowl and set aside while preparing the dressing. 

Combine mayonnaise, garlic, dill, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the buttermilk, adjust the consistency by adding the first 1/3 cup and the remaining portion as needed to achieve a dressing slightly thicker than typical bottled salad dressing. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. 

Pour dressing over Canadian Bacon and pea mixture, tossing to coat. Refrigerate until ready to serve. 

Toss salad just before serving to redistribute the dressing. This salad will remain crisp and delicious for several days in the refrigerator. 

To serve: scoop a generous portion onto a bed of lettuce or serve as a side dish.
