Let me start by saying, “I don’t like English peas.” That being said, I love this salad.
Some how the peas just work, so if you’re like me and generally opposed to English peas, give this a try and I bet you’ll like it.
This is my sister Kay’s recipe, and we beg her to bring it to all our family get togethers. I’ve taken it to my in-laws before, and just like Kay, every time I bring something to their house I’m asked to bring pea salad. My point is, it’s good, it’s addictive, and it’s a great tasting and an easy to make ‘go to’ recipe to take to a pot luck.
Start by chopping enough salad to cover the bottom of your dish.
Next grab a red onion and slice it into thin sections. I use a red onion because Kay says to, and because the red is easy to see and avoid for those who don’t like onion.
Layer the onions over the lettuce.
Open, drain and layer on your English peas.
I used 2 cans for a dish this size.
Next mix equal parts mayonnaise and
sour cream. I would guess I have 2 cups of each for a large Pyrex like I’m using.
Mix the mayo and sour cream until smooth and well incorporated.
Then pour the mixture in a ribbon over the peas.
Lastly, you can grate fresh parmesan cheese on top, or that powdery parmesan cheese in the green container from the grocery is great too.
It’s really good!!!
