Directions:
Combine the mayonaise and sour cream and mix until smooth. Gently spread over frozen peas to cover. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over the dressing. Top with shredded cheddar cheese and bacon bits. Chill a couple hours before serving, but do not prepare a day ahead of being served.
**NOTE: I often cut up all the vegetable the day before I need the salad, but keep each ingredient in its own zip-lock bag, then all you need to do is layer the ingredients as directed, and your done.
