Spring Pea & Apple Salad – SO refreshing!
This is a quirky little salad that I thought you should have in case you are looking for something new, interesting, easy, and VERY tasty to add to your Easter brunch or dinner this weekend.
My harpist friend Roz and I were exchanging chicken thigh recipes the other day and she sent me this recipe as a bonus. Roz mentioned that it goes well with lamb but having had it last night, I would say it goes well with EVERYTHING!
Remember those old fashioned Waldorf Salads of fruit and nuts in a thick mayonnaise dressing? This salad is similar in flavor but so much lighter and more refreshing.
Here’s what you need:
Frozen Peas, Granny Smith Apple, Firm Red Apple (I have a Fuji but pick your favorite), Lime, Mayonnaise, and Fresh Mint.
You need one box or 10 ounces of frozen peas. The original recipe calls for baby or petite peas but I had plain old regular peas in the freezer so that’s what I used.
Run the peas very quickly under cold water to just begin thawing them. No need to thaw all the way. Drain and place them in a mixing bowl.
