Summer salad with peas tomatoes and "bacon"

This is a veganized version of something my mom used to make that I loved. It's a really simple, creamy summer salad with fresh peas, tomatoes, and "bacon." It doesn't really look like much, but something about bacon and tomato and fresh garden peas just goes together. The peas and tomatoes were from this weeks CSA. The "bacon", I picked up in a health food store. I also added a dollop of vegan sour cream. I used the Follow Your Heart one, which I think tastes a more like a thick yogurt than sour cream, but whatever, it's pretty good. You could also use some Tofutti Sour Supreme or Vegenaise.
Also in the CSA was a TON of broccoli, I used some here as a side dish smothered in miso tahini sauce. The "meat" is some Gardein with mushroom gravy. It's on top of a pile of Quinoa.
