No one wants to cook when it is hot outside! This dish can be served as a meal or a side. It is satisfying and refreshing. This dish can also easily be made gluten free. Just check your labels to make sure your mayo and ham are gluten free.
The Grocery List:
2 bags of frozen peas, slightly defrosted
1 16 oz block of sharp cheddar cheese cut into cubes
8 oz of cubed cooked ham (you can use up to 16 oz if you like a meatier dish)
1 half diced yellow onion
1 cup of mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon of Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon of Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to your taste preference ( I use just enough to dust everything with it)
To prepare, place the peas in a strainer and rinse with cold water until they are slightly defrosted. Let the water drain from the peas. Place all the items in a large mixing bowl and stir together. Place the salad in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
