Pea Salad

I remember my grandmother making this pea salad. I've updated it and added a few more ingredients. It goes with almost any meal as a side dish. So good with bbq ribs, pork chops, chicken, ham, any meat really. I even like it just by itself. The curry powder gives it it's umph. Adjust the ingredients to suit your taste.



  • 1 can drained peas.
  • 1 small onion (chopped).
  • 2 boiled eggs (chopped) could use only 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. Red wine herb vinegar. (or to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar (or to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise (or you can leave it out and only use Marzetti)
  • Marzetti slaw dressing (I add enough to dress all ingredients I like it kinda soupy)
  • celery seed
  • dill weed
  • curry powder
  • leaf. Marj
  • basil leaves
  • parsley flakes
  • leaf oregano
  • thyme
  • a shake of "original" mrs. Dash
  • few shakes of garlic powder


Mix all in a bowl and toss to cover. Chill.

The curry powder gives it "it's taste". I put curry powder in most all my salads; egg, potato, macaroni, tuna, salmon. I just add until I think it tastes just right. Really good with ribs, chops, ham, anything!

The cooking time is for boiling the eggs. Maybe 15 minutes. Nothing else needs to be cooked. I prepare the other ingredients while waiting on the eggs to boil.
