Sweet Peas & Onion Salad

I've made this salad several times in the last week.  It's not only quick and easy but tasty too! This pea salad is the perfect accompaniment to a summer picnic or barbecue.  Start with one cup of frozen small sweet peas.

Next add two cups of fresh leafy mixed lettuced leaves...

Add about 1/3 of a thinly sliced sweet vidalia onion, cut into strips, and then quarters.

Add your onions to the bowl with the frozen peas.

Next, in a separate bowl combine 1/2 cup of mayonaisse, 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar, 2 teaspoons of ground black pepper and toss in with lettuce leaves, onions and frozen peas.  Once your salad is completely blended, sprinkle generously with sea salt and then give it another stir.  *Note: It's important that you started out with frozen peas and not thawed peas because as this salad sits and waits to be eaten, the flavors will begin to meld together.

Let your bowl sit in the fridge or out on the table for about 30 mins to an hour & enjoy!  Bon Appetit & Happy Picnicing!!
