My Mother's Pea Salad

My Mother’s Pea Salad

My mother made this simple yet different pea salad for picnics or for dinner on hot summer nights. Continuing her tradition, I made it to take to a small boat meet, the Mid Atlantic Small Craft Festival at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and again to take to the Urbanna Small Craft Meet.


  • 4 Cups frozen organic peas partially thawed and patted dry on a clean dish towel
  • 3/4 Cups organic pimentos diced
  • 1 1/2 Cups grated organic grass fed cheddar cheese


  • 1/4 Cup avocado oil mayonnaise

    Adding the dressing
    Adding the dressing
