Green Pea Salad


This is a Green Pea Salad my Mom use to make all the time.......and has always been a favourite of mine. She got this recipe from a dear old friend when she first got married........probably one of those 1950's recipes. 
It's easy peasy to do. Especially if you are in a hurry to make some dinner. I always keep a few canned peas on hand.....it only works with canned green peas and not frozen or fresh. I usually get the low-sodium ones.
When I serve it for company I use a pretty antique pedestal bowl.......and get asked for this simple recipe.

Green Pea Salad

1 can Green Peas, drained (any size)
2 scallions, chopped 
3 Tbsp. Oil (I use Canola)
1 Tbsp. regular vinegar

Combine all ingredients above and mix well......and enjoy!

****You can adjust the oil and vinegar ratio to your taste...I usually just eye-ball it.

Green Hostas.


Thanks for stopping by!!!!!


  1. Happy holiday! I just noticed on my calendar it was a civic holiday in Canada. I was just reading your blog to my hubby and he was thrilled I was going to make a pea salad. Apparently I've been neglecting peas! Thank you!

  2. Truly easy peasy... what a quaint old fashion recipe I love how simple it is... thanks for sharing it on foodie friday.
