Tasty Tuesday: Nannie's Pea Salad

For this week's Tasty Tuesday party I decided to not only pay tribute to yet another highly disliked vegetable (last week was brussel sprouts), but also to another fantabulous Nannie's recipe.

Let me start off by saying I'm not a pea fan. I'm very picky and snobbish when it comes to peas. I hate them cooked and served up as a side. I will tolerate them in casseroles, but only about once a month maybe. If eaten at all I prefer to eat them in salads (note: not on salads, IN salads). My daughter hates peas as well. They just aren't that popular in the Mayhorn household.

However, having said that, I love pea salad, therefore I think peas (like brussel sprouts) are worthy of a blog. Especially when paired with my Nannie's Pea Salad Recipe. It really is yummy (coming from a pea hater), but who could go wrong with Nannie's recipe afterall? So won't you give peas a chance, please? It would be a great side for that upcoming Easter lunch or dinner! Now hop on over to Forever Wherever and join Kim and the rest of us in sharin' some food!

Nannie's Pea Salad

1 can tiny baby peas "LeSeuer" brand

1 can french style green beans

2 oz. jar pimento

5-6 green onion, sliced thin, use some green

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup cider vinegar

2/3 cup sugar (or Splenda)

Heat oil, vinegar and sugar (or Splenda) to dissolve (on low heat)- Let cool completely. Mix all together and then let it marinade in the fridge for at least 24 hours.

These are the ONLY peas I do as well!! I will definitely be trying this recipe - and eating the whole thing by myself as the other member of my household refuses peas. Anyhoo - should we drain the peas and beans or no?

Hmmm, that's a good question! Yes, I do believe you should drain them first! Thanks!
