Peas: A Sweet and Filling Salad
Little Le Sueur peas, named after the Minnesota town where you'll find the Green Giant Company, aren't as vibrant-looking as larger peas, but they taste sweeter. A make-it-the-night-before salad is a good way to let their candy-like flavor shine. Drain a can and mix it with 2/3 cup Cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes; a chopped hard-boiled egg; a small onion, minced; and a few spoonfuls of mayonnaise. Add salt and pepper and refrigerate overnight.
