Southern Pea Salad

I was in a cooking kinda mood the other night.  Really, it was a random thing.  I thought about making something quick and fun, like potato salad...but who wants to wait for potatoes to cook?  No, I needed a more instant gratification.

Besides salad or a can of soup, or a papery TV dinner...what else could I make in a jiffy?  That's when I remembered the awesome pea salad I discovered at a recent Easter cookout.

And, oh my, am I happy I tried this one!

The Recipe:

2 cans of peas, drained
1 cup of mayonaise
1/2 cup  of Sharp Cheddar, cut into cubes
1/2 cup of honey-smoked ham, cut into cubes
1 onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Mix it all into a large bowl.  Chill for about an hour.  Then eat!  Yummm.

My pea salad turned out amazing...seriously, I ate three bowls-full!
