I love this salad and have made it for multiple potlucks and parties. The dressing is what makes the salad. It is creamy and garlicy and wonderful!
I make it both with chickpeas and without. I often cut up the veggies the night before and make the dressing right before the event. Since the dressing is avocado base it does turn a little gray after 24 hours. Leftovers still taste good!
Enjoy this yummy salad.

The weather is so nice here in Chicago. I have many seedlings coming up in my garden. Today while checking the seeds I planted I enjoyed a bowl of Peas Salad leftover from our Easter dinner.
It’s Earth Day and I am reflecting on the the things I do each day of the year to be kind to mother earth….
reusable shopping bags
reusable containers when taking a lunch
bring my own travel mug for coffee
reusable water bottles
There is always more I want to do
sign up for food scrape recycling
reusable produce bags
use rags more than paper towels
I’m sure both lists are longer. I hope you are able to find some way to boost your help of mother earth this year.
Spring Pea Salad
2 cups peas (I thaw frozen ones)
A few strips of bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion (or shallot)
3 tablespoons mayonaise
1 tablespoon plain unsweetened dairy-free yogurt (I use the SoDelicious in the green tub)
2 tablespoons finely chopped mint
1/4 cup dairy-free cheddar cheese (I use SoDelicious shreds)
Combine all ingredients.
Refrigerate for 4 hours to overnight.
Enjoy! – Love this salad!
It is finally spring in the Chicago area! Time to wash all the winter outerwear and pack it away for the summer.
