With Easter just around the corner, I am excited to share one of my favorite family get-together, side dishes. In my family, growing up my sister and I always had one thing we would make at any big family get together, so that during dinner, we could claim that we made it of course. My sister always made her famous deviled eggs, and to this day still does. My mother taught me how to make this delicious pea salad when I was about 7 or 8 years old (which in retrospect, she probably let me make because it is so simple).
This will be my first year to ever host a family holiday meal, so of course this creamy, pea salad will be one of the sides at the table. When I was younger, we made it with little chunks of cheese mixed in, but this vegan version is a lot healthier. And to be honest, I actually like it more without the cheese! Shhh, don’t tell mom :)
And just had to share this photo (a little blurry, but still cute) – this is what is actually happening under the table… my sweet, kitty Ladybird loves her some veggies too!
- 1 bag (12oz) frozen peas
- ¼ purple onion, diced
- ¼ cup vegan mayonnaise (I used "Just Mayo")
- salt & pepper to taste
- Let peas thaw.
- After peas have thawed, combine with the diced onion and vegan mayo.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
