Crunchy fresh tasting goodness from your garden in January? Yes!
If you've been with me for a while, you might remember that I once shamelessly urged you to freeze peas.
Peas are one of the first things you can grow in your garden. They thrive in chilly spring weather. And they are so beautiful. If you don't grow peas to eat, at least try growing them for their pretty little flowers and their fancy swirly curly tendrils. They are gorgeous!
In fact, if I remember correctly, I think that peas won the "Miss Vegetable America" pageant last year. As usual, I didn't watch. So I don't know what they did for the talent portion... but they should have made this salad. Because not too many vegetables can do this...
PEA AND EGG SALAD
2 cups frozen peas, thawed
6 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 cup shredded cheese of your choice
1 tablespoon finely minced onion
1/4 cup mayonnaise (you might want to make your own)
salt and pepper, to taste
Mix everything together and serve!
