Pea Salad Recipe

This is one of those salads that you can put together in a matter of minutes. I love this salad because I love the crunch of the peas with the creamy pickle dressing and bites of cheese too!

I first had this salad years ago in Germany when a friend brought it to a dinner we were having. I fell in love with it immediately. She added peanuts to it right before she served it only I didn’t have any so I did the naked version, I use frozen peas for this because I like the crunch of the peas. I don’t let them thaw before mixing the pea salad up either. I just dump it together and let it set for at least 2 hours.
