Looking for Summer Pea Salad Recipe

United States
March 16, 2007 10:46am CST
I remember as a teen having a delcious pea salad. If I remember correctly, I once heard someone call it Summer Pea Salad. Anway, it had a creamy sauce/base made of mayonnaise I think. But it could have been sour cream or other creamy ingredients. Topped with cheese. Does this sound familiar to anyone? It was served cold like a potato salad. Anyway, if anyone has this recipe, or one similar to what I am trying to find, please share!

I know of one that had these ingredients, but don't know the amounts. Equal parts moyo, salad dressing, then red onion and chopped boiled eggs and frozen peas. If you are like me you could make it with those ingredients and just use the amounts that taste good to you. Hope that helps.

I forgot, you can add shredded cheddar cheese to it too.

Yes the one I had tried had shredded cheddar cheese on it. When you say salad dressing do you mean Miracle Whip? Or an actual type of salad dressing?

I made pea salad for a friend of mine recently. It was his birthday and he requested it. It's just frozen peas (or you can use canned if you like), a few hardboiled eggs, crumbled about 1/4 of a very thinly sliced onion (i did mine on my mandoline's thinnest setting) and a few spoonfulls of mayo. Be sure to salt and pepper, and maybe some paprika if you're a fan, but that's it. play around with the proportions until you find what you like, just be sure to start with one spoon of mayo and work your way up. Then write it down so you can remember your favorite proportions. It's great alongside fried chicken or barbecue!

I think it did have hard boiled egg cut up in it, now that I am thinking of it. I don't remember it having bacon, but that would definitely be a good add-in! Just mayonnaise huh? Well that sure seems easy enough. Thank you! I will be trying this soon for sure!

What a great idea! Bacon would be an amazing add-in. I'm doing that next time.

LOL I wasn't paying attention apparently because I mistook the crumbled egg for crumled bacon-LOL. So maybe that is where is new recipes dawn! From people like me who don't pay attention!

Sprinkle frozen pea next. Add salt and sugar to the mayo and spread over top. Next sprinkle on eggs and bacon and top with grated cheese. Cover and let stand refridgerated for up to 24 hours.

Well I made it, but without having my computer on LOL. So mine was pretty basic-I just had frozen peas, grated cheddar, mayonnaise, and I add a little sweet relish too. I brought it to a friends as my dish to share for dinner one night last week, and it was delicious! She really liked it too.

I have had this at a local buffet. Peas, slivered cheese, cubed ham and a mayo dressing. I just put those ingredients together at home with a teensy bit of sugar in the mayo (if you use miracle whip type dressings you wouldn't need that) salt and pepper. I dont recall if I put some red onions in or not, but it tasted quite the same as the restaurant's version.

Yes, maybe alittle sgar added would be good to use in it. I did recall it having a sweeter taste than just a mac salad or whatever. I had not seen it with ham before though-that would be good I bet.

Sounds good! The olives as an add-in will be appealing to my children, who like peas, but are skeptical at times. Thank you!
