This simple English Pea Salad is a great accompaniment to any picnic or pot luck. Served cold, this classic side dish is simple and easy to prepare and makes the perfect accompaniment to grilled or BBQ’d meats, fried chicken, steamed seafood, or even sandwiches.
Creamy English Pea Salad is a dish I remember from my childhood. While we ate it mostly in the summer months at barbecues and backyard parties usually with grilled meats and kabobs, but it is a great side dish for any time of the year.
To fully enjoy this salad, it helps if you’re a fan of peas but do know that some people (like me) who don’t usually eat peas, will often eat pea salad. I do not know why this phenomenon occurs, but it does! This is great with just about anything off the barbecue grill, so give it a try!
