Bacon Ranch Pea Salad

I love volunteering as my "me" time.  Once a month I plan, co ordinate and prepare a meal for 40 at the Ronald McDonald House in St. Louis.  This Pea Salad is always a big hit with the residents.

Bacon Ranch Pea Salad
40 slices bacon
8 (16 ounce) packages frozen green peas
3-1/3 cups chopped onions
4 cups Ranch dressing
4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Place bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat, and cook until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside. Bring the water to a boil in a pot. Boil the peas 1 minute, until just tender, and drain. Cool peas under cold running water. In a bowl, toss together bacon, peas, onion, Ranch dressing, and Cheddar cheese. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until chilled before serving.
