Simple and Easy Sweet Pea Salad

My brother is a big fan of Sweet Pea Salad and

introduced me to this recipe.


I am not a fan of English Peas at all, but if I were, I would

choose to eat them

this way.


When I heard that a sick elderly woman that I go

to church with was wanting Chicken and Dumplings, I whipped up a HUGE

 pot.  Enough for my family and then several servings for her.

I wanted to take her a full meal and in my cabinet was a can

of Sweet Peas.  I hated to just take plain peas…I wanted to dress them

up a little.  So I made this Simple and Easy Sweet Pea Salad.  She loved it!

Along with the Chicken and Dumplings and

Sweet Pea Salad,

I made her a snack size

Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.


You know it just feels good to do something for somebody

that’s unable to do for themselves.

What a treat!  for us both.


1 can baby sweet (English) peas
1 boiled egg, chopped
2 Tablespoons onion, diced fine
1 heaping Tablespoon of sweet pickle relish
1/3 cup real mayonnaise
salt and pepper to season
Drain the peas, add all ingredients. Mix and chill.  Serve chilled.
