Fresh Garden Pea Salad
20 mins (prep 20)
14 ingredients
6-8 servings
This recipe is my version of Luby's pea salad. My daughters always ask for it at family bbq's. My british side of the family are now new fans of it, as well. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Fresh peas work great for this recipe. Just blanch them and then dry them well. Don't be concerned if the dressing seams skimpy at first. The salad will get moist as it sits.
