"Along with asparagus, peas are one of the most quintessential spring veggies and they have always been popular with my boys. Instead of serving up the usual steamed frozen peas that appear on our dinner plates throughout the year, I decided that the fresh spring peas deserved a more special treatment in the form of this Southern Pea Salad. It’s cool, crispy, and packed full of sweet flavors. Even my non-pea-loving husband likes this dish! I kept this salad pretty healthy by using plain Greek yogurt and just a little bit of mayo for the dressing. The bright green peas, the yellow bell pepper, the purple onion, and the red pimientos make it colorful and fresh. Now that the weather is warmer and folks in Virginia have come out of “hibernation,” it’s the season for outdoor picnics and potlucks! I often volunteer to bring a salad or side dish to these gatherings, but I also don’t want to toss together the same old tired lettuce greens with cucumbers and tomatoes. Potlucks are the most fun when we get to taste a variety of different foods, and I love to share new recipes with our friends and family!"

This pea salad would even be great served on top of crackers or toasted crostini like a canap. It would be a cute thing to serve at an Easter brunch like this! I agree, that fresh peas really have a much sweeter and vibrant flavor than the frozen ones, and they seem bigger and more plump as well. But if you don't feel like shuckin' all those peas, frozen ones will work too.
