Super Easy Sweet Pea Salad.

I have been known to eat an entire can of peas, drained and lightly rinsed, in place of an actual meal. I love snowpeas and sugar snap peas. I like peas that are cold and I like peas that are warm.

It surprises no one, then, that I really enjoyed eating this pea salad.

Mmmmm.. pea salad!

The recipe for this is similar to one that my mother used to make – but hers involved broccoli and raisins and cider vinegar and red onions. This one is much lighter tasting and didn’t involve chopping broccoli. I hate chopping broccoli.

Super Easy Sweet Pea Salad

Ingredients:
20 oz. frozen peas, thawed, rinsed, and drained
1 cup of craisins
1 cup of unsalted peanuts
1/2 cup of chopped green onions
1/2 cup of crumbled bacon (I cheated and used pre-cooked and pre-crumbled from Costco)
1 cup of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of white sugar
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (or more, to taste)
1/4 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together mayo, sugar, pepper, worcestershire sauce, and soy sauce.
  2. In a larger bowl, combine peas, craisings, peanuts, green onions, and bacon.
  3. Pour the mayo mixture over the pea mixture. Stir to coat.
  4. Put it in the fridge for at least an hour, but preferably a few hours (to let flavours combine).
  5. Eat it. Exclaim about how it tastes SO GOOD.
