I'd never had pea salad until I met Matt's family. His Grandma serves it at some of the family Holidays. There isn't much of a recipe for it and it's really not much of a dish but it is pretty tasty. Plus, you're getting a serving of veggies, right? :-)
I wasn't there for the year that Matt's Grandma served them frozen pea salad, but they definitely reminisce about it each time we have pea salad. Oops!!
Recipe from: Family Recipe
Bag of frozen peas, thawed
Roasted peanuts for topping, optional
Salt & pepper, to taste
There isn't much of a recipe as I said. You use as much or as little mayonnaise as you'd like. Mix together the mayonnaise and peas. Top with the peanuts. Serve.
You could prepare this a day ahead of time, keeping the peas frozen and allowing them to thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Maybe that's how she accidentally served them frozen pea salad?! If you use this method, make sure your peas are thawed by taking a little taste test before serving!
