Spring Pea Salad

    I wanted to bring a light and fresh side dish to K.C.'s crab feast.  I kept changing my mind about what I was going to make.  I needed something I could make in advance.  Something I could make before work and not require much before we headed across the street to K.C.'s house.  We are so lucky to have my brothers live so close!  So, I decided to make a pea salad.  Jamie from Love Bakes Good Cakes posted a recipe on Facebook recently that got the idea in my head.  Hers looked great, but I wanted something a bit lighter, so this is what I came up with.  It was pretty darn good if I do say so myself.

   It was really good with the crab feast, and was a pretty tasty breakfast the next morning too!  
Spring Pea Salad

Ingredients:

1 lb peas (fresh would be great, but these were defrosted frozen peas)
1/2 cup plain yogurt 
1-2 green onions
2 slices ham
2 oz cheese, cubed (I used half mozzarella and half colby jack)
salt and pepper

  1. Make sure peas are drained
  2. Slice your green onions and dice your ham into relatively small pieces
  3. Mix all the ingredients together
  4. Adjust your salt and pepper to your liking and refrigerate until ready to serve
That's it!  So easy and so good!  

This recipe is shared at Southern Plate's Easter Roundup

    1. I hadn't had it in a while either. It is really good and so easy, I don't know why I stopped making it. I am sure it will make an appearance on our dinner table quite a few times this spring!

  10. I do pea salad with bleu cheese dressing-- I am sure I could make the dressing a bit lighter with greek yogurt! I have also used bacon instead of ham. this looks lovely!
