Maw Maw Madge’s Pea Salad

Everybody wants a little more pea salad.

At Thanksgiving this year, I was introduced to Maw Maw Madge’s Pea Salad. I can tell you this…Looks can be deceiving! This cold salad is delicious and is best served with comfort foods like Fonda’s Chicken Casserole, Picnic Pulled Barbecue, or Roasted Chicken and Vegetables. The best thing about this salad is that it gets better the longer it marinates. Once you try it, you will know what I mean. My dear friend Gina passed this recipe on to me, and I am passing it on to you.
From start to finish, this recipe will take you about 10 minutes to prepare.
Allow this recipe to marinate for 24 hours before serving.
1 can French green beans (drained)
1 can baby peas (drained)
1 jar diced pimentos (drained)
1 medium onion finely chopped
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste


Gently combine all ingredients in a bowl until sugar is dissolved.
Refrigerate overnight.
Serve cold.

    This looks great – my wife hates peas (can’t imagine why) so we don’t often have them in the house – sometimes I trick her into eating them by putting them in a pie or something :D. Must try this sometime… I wonder what it’s like with chopped mint, that usually goes really well with peas too!
