Green Pea Salad is a family favorite that I enjoyed when I was young, and still do today.  It is a very easy-to-make vegetable salad using fresh or frozen peas. Great for taking to a spring potluck or even a summer picnic.  Your family will love this recipe!

Fresh peas come in and out of season very quickly!  If you are lucky enough to find some fresh green peas, please do use them in this Green Pea Salad recipe. You will not be sorry!  Otherwise frozen green peas work great.

This Green Pea Salad also goes especially well with lamb.
