I loved the old pea salad where you just took a can of peas and added mayonnaise. When my parents made that, it made me happy. This is a dressed up version of that same salad. Make sure you get some good sweet frozen peas – that makes all the difference! Recipe from Family Circle Magazine.
-1 bag (16 oz) frozen peas
-1 cup mayonnaise
-1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped (optional)
-1 tsp black pepper
-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or a mix of cheeses
-1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1. Place the peas in a colander and run under cold water until just thawed but still cold. Allow to drain and place in a large bowl. Stir in the mayonnaise (add more or less according to taste).
2. Add the chopped onion, black pepper and cheeses. Mix well.
3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
