Pea Salad

This pretty Pea Salad is a perfect side dish. With its great taste, it tricks people into eating  vegetables!

Peas, onion, eggs, mayo, and cheese. Five ingredients that don’t seem to go together, but, wow, they do taste yummy! When all of the ingredients are combined, this salad has a creamy texture. Glenn actually moaned out loud when he bit into it when I made it a couple of evenings ago. I thought he had hurt himself until I saw his eyes closed, empty fork near his mouth, and a smile on his face as he chewed!  

Mom normally made this easy, peasy salad (ok, I just had to do that - smiles -) in the spring and summer, so I start to get hungry for it around this time of year. It makes me think of potlucks and picnics with friends and family members, exchanging stories and laughs. And, let’s face it, after the winter we all had this year, Spring sounds really good about now. 

We used Colby-Jack cheese in the salad for the version shown here, but you can easily change the taste by using another type of cheese. Pepper Jack gives it a nice bite, while sharp Cheddar gives it a completely different taste. It will keep for several days in the refrigerator, but good luck keeping your family from eating it that long.  

I hope this salad recipe helps to satisfy your family and create happy memories for you, too!
