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.

Ingredients:

Directions:

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.

Fill large bowl with either 1 layer or many layers (I prefer many)

Ingredients:

Directions:

Layer the lettuce, cauliflower, peas, cheese, light salt and pepper and put small dollops (about a tsp. size of mayo for each layer. I spread mayo to completely cover the top layer, then sprinkle with bacon bits (some people put bacon bits on each layer). Cover tightly and refrigerate at least 8 hours. There is no incorrect way to do this salad. Every time I serve this everyone raves it. Also great to take to a potluck!

You thaw the frozen bag of peas in the refrigerator overnight. When you put the salad together the next day, you chill it and then serve. This should be eaten within one to two days unless you decide to freeze them again.

This quick recipe can be made ahead, and put in the 'fridge until time to eat. It is also one of those recipes that goes "quick"at a covered dish dinner.
