Easy Pea Salad Recipe
This is one of those quick and easy recipes that should be in the American Cooking Encyclopedia, it comes in handy for a variety of occasions. I have used this is as both a main salad as well as a side dish, both cold and warm. It’s best cold for a summer dish and warm for a winter side dish.
You can alter the ingredients to taste. I tend to add more celery and onions.
I also like that it takes only a small amount of mayonnaise to bring all ingredients together.
If I have a choice, I would let this sit overnight so the flavors marinate.
1 can drained peas
1 shelled hard boiled egg
1/2 cup chopped fresh celery
1/4 cup chopped yellow and/or red onions
1 tbsp mayonnaise
salt to taste
To make: Mix together. You can add a second egg if you want more egg and a dash of milk if you want more coating on the peas.
Cover and allow to marinate for a couple of hours or overnight for the cold version.
Serve immediately if you want it served warm.
