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!
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!
