Memaw's Pea Salad

My weakness for Memaw recipes has been well documented on this blog and I bookmarked this recipe immediately. We usually have a pickled salad with Sunday dinner and I thought this would really mix things up a bit! My sons liked it and I recommend trying it if you're looking for something different.
I'd like to thank Nici for sharing this fun family recipe!

Memaw's Pea Salad-from Posed Perfection
2 Tblsp mayonnaise
1 tsp prepared mustard
splash of pickle juice
1-2 Tblsp minced onion-sweet onion if you have it
2 Tblsp minced dill pickle
1/4 tsp each S&P-or to taste
1 can peas, drained
1/4 C shredded cheese-I used cheddar
  1. Mix everything except peas and cheese.
  2. Gently fold the peas and cheese into the wet mixture.
  3. Chill for at least 30 minutes.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)

I'm Joining:
Full Plate Thursday


  1. oh my goodness, I thought we were the only ones who had this. back in 82 my Nana Lib got this recipe at a ladies church dinner and she made it every year at the holidays. I started making it in 2003 when family started gathering at my home.

    Love seeing it here and knowing now we arent the only ones having Pea Salad...~!

  2. Well, I am a Memaw and we LOVE English Pea Salad. I've made it for.evah...
    never have put the dill and pickles in mine, tho...a must try.:))

  3. oops, I wasn't finished....
    we add peanuts to ours.

  4. Are you originally from the south? I grew up with that same salad except it was my nanny's (grandmother)!!


  5. Someone brought this in for a work lunch last week. I spent a lot of time picking around the onions, but loved the rest of it.

  6. My mother used to make that - gee that brought memories - I pinned it. I don't think I have an actual recipe for that. Thanks. It tastes great. sandie

  7. I had this at a church picnic once! Thanks for reminding me!

    Greetings from Minneapolis,


  8. Now this is a pea salad I would enjoy. No sour cream (yucky-JMHO) :-) Might make this for T-day as one of my sides. Can be made the night before, love that. xo

  9. I'm southern and I've never met a pea I didn't like.

  10. This one has me puckering and wanting a nice big bite. Sounds fabulous.

  11. Someone at my church always brought that to our covered dish suppers. I loved it! :)

  12. Sounds perfectly delicious and nostalgic at the same time. Some of those old fashioned recipes are the best!

  13. Nothing can replace the old fashion way of cooking. My mother was the best and did it all from scratch.

  14. Hi Lynnie! Oh, I love pea salad and haven't made it in so long. I just make your recipe for Thanksgiving.
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  15. I have never had a pea salad before, but I think it sounds great!

  16. Wishing you and your family a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope to see you soon!

  17. I have enjoyed pea salad-although not part of my family meals, I have had the pleasure of enjoying it on my friend's table.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.


  18. YUM! I made this salad to have with our dinner tonight--smashed sweet potatoes and Tri Tip and YUM it was a big hit! Next time, I will have to double it for sure! I did use cooked frozen peas (drained) instead of canned because that was what I had on hand and I really liked the texture. Thanks for sharing!


Thanks for stopping by!
