This easy pea salad has sweet, crunchy pieces of onions mixed with creamy bites of Cheddar cheese. Growing up, a friend of the family made us this pea salad that we love to this day. It’s just standard stuff: peas, mayonnaise, egg, cheese, and onion. That’s it!
I thought it was great! Adding the eggs even made it appealing to my younger children. I was shocked that they liked it so much, considering anything with peas is a kid repellant. I used frozen peas due to the other reviews, but didn’t change anything else. Great recipe.
DELICIOUS! Loved this salad. I did use thawed frozen peas instead of canned. I also had to use shredded cheese as that is what I had on hand. I like that this recipe does not contain bacon. I served this to company along with ‘Slow Cooker Beer Pulled Pork’ from AR, and veggies and dip. My SIL LOVED the pea salad best!
I love it. I too used frozen peas but I boiled them for about 1 minute and ran cold water over them to speed up the thawing process. They didn’t get a mushy as canned but just a tad softer,
Because the Grands act as if I”m trying to poison them if they run across a raw piece of onion in their food I started substituting thinly sliced radish for the onion. It does have an extra advantage of being really pretty in the bowl.
Just like Grandma’s ! My sis-in-law who was on very tight budget made this for every holiday, I would call her to make sure she would bring it. She added a couple dashes of dry mustard which really brought out all the flavors. Her bowl always went home empty. I, add one shake of cayenne pepper for a small zing. Nothing wrong with the basic recipe, you can just let it evolve over the years to your tastes.
