New Orleans Green Pea Salad


This New Orleans classic is a tasty salad, that was popular in the 70's, and is quick and easy to make.

GATHER YOUR GROCERIES:

1 bag of frozen green peas
1 heaping tablespoon of mayonnaise (mynez)
½ red bell pepper diced
¼ cup of shredded Parmesan cheese
Sprinkle of white sugar

Salt, garlic powder, cayenne and black pepper to taste

THE WAY TO DO IT:

Step 1: Pour the frozen green peas in a colander and rinse quickly with warm water. You want to only partially thaw the peas with the center of each pea still frozen. Drain.

Step 2: Pour the peas in a mixing bowl. Add the mynez, chopped red bell pepper and Parmesan cheese. Season to taste. Refrigerate at least one hour to allow the flavors to combine. Enjoy!
