Winter Pea Salad Plate with Tomatoes and Cashews
by the seat of my pants

2 c frozen peas - thawed (10oz pkg)
1/2 c diced celery (use the tender inner ribs if possible)
1/2 diced ham
1/2 c diced cheddar cheese
1/4 c diced red onion or our favorite pickled red onion

1/4 c sour cream
1/4 c mayonnaise
1/8 t garlic salt
fresh ground pepper
heavy dash of Angostura bitters

2 Roma tomatoes - quartered lengthwise
2 hard-cooked eggs - diced
1/3 c coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
large handful of salted cashews

In a large bowl, combine peas, celery, ham, cheddar cheese, and onion pieces. Toss gently and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic salt, pepper, and bitters. Whisk together until smooth. Pour over pea mixture, and fold the dressing into the vegetables.

Arrange on a serving platter, add tomato pieces, diced egg, parsley, and cashews. Cover and chill until serving time.

  1. What pretty salad! And that addition of Angostura bitters is something I wouldn't have thought of.

    1. There is a steak house in Portland Oregon that serves a first course of vegetables and a dip consisting of equal parts mayonnaise and sour cream and a dash of bitters. I have always remembered that unique taste and it plays out very well here in this salad also. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.

  2. I love salads like this! Pinning it.
