A Summer of Salads: Curry Pea and Almond Salad

I’ve had this recipe for years and like to make it for summer BBQs. A lot of pea salads with a mayonnaise-based dressing include bacon, but this one will keep the vegetarians happy too. It’s great with grilled chicken, unexpected to serve with burgers and just plain delicious on its own. Even eaters who aren’t sold on curry enjoy this, and you can always add more if you’re curry-crazy! Oh – did I mention it takes about 5 minutes to make? Awesome!

Step 1: Put the peas, chopped almonds and green onion into a bowl

Oh yeah – while I prefer Best Foods or Hellman’s mayonnaise for this, if you use vegan mayo, your vegan diners will love it too!

Step 2: Mix the mayo and curry powder together
