I made a really yummy pea salad for our family BBQ tonight (sorry, no pictures). It was quick and easy, and it was super tasty. You should try it.
Crunchy Pea Salad
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 lb. frozen peas, thawed and drained
2 ribs celery, diced
1/2 cup salted cashews, roughly chopped
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
bacon, finely crisped
salt and pepper to taste
Whisk mayonnaise and vinegar together. Add everything else, mix gently. Chill 1 hour. Eat with a spoon.
I actually forgot to add the bacon and it was still awesome without it. It is a great substitute for potato or pasta salad and is nice and light. I used a whole bag of peas because I was feeding a lot of people, but you can make it smaller for your needs. Enjoy!
