English Pea Salad

In the south you have to identify which kind of peas you are using.  Black eyed peas or sweet green english peas.  This salad uses the english peas along with other veggies and an avocado dressing.  I know it is tailgating season.  This salad would be a fresh addition to your menu and travels well.  It can serve as the center of your meal or as a side dish.  It is a sure way to get the veggies you need.

English Pea Salad

10 ounces peas, if using frozen, thaw, rinse and drain
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1/4 cup diced yellow bell pepper
2 green onions, white and green parts sliced thin
1 egg, hard boiled, peeled and diced
1/2 of a large avocado, peeled
1 tsp. white wine vinegar (you can use lemon juice if you want)
1 tbsp. olive oil mayonnaise
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

Place the first six ingredients, peas through egg, in a bowl and toss together.  Place the avocado in a separate bowl and mash with a fork till smooth.  Add the vinegar, mayonnaise, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Stir together till smooth and creamy.  Add the dressing to the veggies and stir to coat.

I served it on a bed of red leaf lettuce.  You can eat it as is, or stuff it in tomatoes, stuff it in peppers.  You serve it in a way that pleases you.  So eat your veggies and have a good weekend everyone!
