Look no further! This Easy Pea and Cheese Salad is just what your Memorial Day Picnic Menu needs to be complete!
Pea Salad – kind of a funny name, right? I don’t think anything of it since I have been eating pea salad forever; it’s one of my dad’s favorites. But Kevin and the kids and looked at me like an alien when I told them what was for dinner. After checking that I hadn’t grown another head, I reassured them to try it before they knocked it. And like the good family they are, they loved it. Well, Kevin and Charlie loved it; Greta ate it. (Progress people, I’ll take it however I can get it.) But the weird thing was, Greta picked out peas to eat and left the cheese. Not sure how any child of mine would do something like that.
I always make my Pea Salad with frozen peas, which makes it a super easy side dish and ensures the vibrant color of the salad. Add a little chopped onion, hard-boiled egg and some quality cheddar cheese, and you’re in business. I updated my dressing to be half mayo and half greek yogurt. I love the added tang, and who can say no to the additional protein?
What are you waiting for? This Easy Pea and Cheese Salad is calling your name. It’s a perfect accompaniment to anything off the grill and is just what your Memorial Day menu needs to kick summer off on the right foot.
