Pea Salad

This is another one of our dense veggie salads.  I like the flavor of cheddar cheese in this salad, but last night we were out of cheddar, so you're seeing jack cheese cubes, instead.

PEA SALAD (vegetarian)

1 (16 oz.) pkg. frozen green peas, cooked & cooled
2 stalks celery, 1/4” sliced
1/3 cup sweet pickles, chopped
8 oz. cheddar or jack cheese, cubed
2 Tbsp. honey
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground allspice
2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. olive oil

lettuce leaves


Place peas, celery, pickles, and cheese in a large bowl.

In a small jar, combine honey, salt, allspice, vinegar, and olive oil.  Cover and shake well.  Pour over pea mixture and gently stir to combine and coat the vegetables.
Can be served on a bed of lettuce.

Serves 4-6.
