  • This sounds odd but it's light and fresh and if you like peas, it's good.

    2 C cold peas
    Diced radishes like half C
    sliced green onion, two
    1/2 C quartered cucumbers
    Pepper
    Dressing:
    1 T white vinegar
    1 T honey
    2 T olive oil
    Toss

  • Potato salad my mom's x-BF used to make for me because I hate onions, he said the recipe is "english"(he is from england)

    Just potatoes cut up then you add half mayo and half sour cream. Fresh or frozen peas(cooked then cooled) and it's easy potato salad, my favorite ever. You could add onions if you like them, if you use purple onions it would add some nice color with the green peas. No specific measurements just enough mayo and sour cream to cover the potatoes and the peas... how ever you like it.

    Toss spinach (or mesclun) in a large bowl with the remaining dressing. Divide the greens among 6 plates and top with the vegetables. Serve immediately. MAKES 6 SERVINGS NOTE: When I feel ambitious, I make croutons from pita; for a crowd, top with vegetables in the serving bowl.

  • Combine the following in a dish...

    cherry tomatoes, green olives, black olives, garlic stuffed green olives, chopped artichokes, and Newmans Own Italian dressing. Right before serving, add pearl mozzerella cheese balls. SOOOO yummy. You can do all but the mozz cheese before hand. The dressing will break down the mozzerella cheese if it is in there too long.
