The inspiration to make a Broccoli Pea Salad came to me one day while perusing the grocery store’s deli section. It amazes me that all of these side dishes cost so much per pound. Especially since you know they have been sitting in the cooler for hours, if not days. So, I hit the web to gather a few ideas and came up with my own recipe that is quick and easy. Just like our Potato Salad recipe, you have endless customizability with this Broccoli Pea Salad to suit your family’s tastes.
Besides being quick and easy, the Broccoli Pea Salad is a great RV recipe. The majority of the time traveling we already have all the ingredients needed. Since everything is mixed in one bowl, it truly makes an RV friendly recipe that you can double or triple for a pot-luck.
Broccoli Pea Salad Recipe
By Adventures In RV Life, Melissa McElfresh
Serves 6+ (depending on additional mix in choices)
½ Cup Greek Yogurt
1 TB Apple Cider Vinegar
¼ Tsp Worcestershire sauce
10 oz Frozen Peas
¼ Cup Onion, finely chopped (white, yellow or red)
½ Cup Cashews, chopped
1 Cup Fresh Broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Cutting board and knife
Whisk or fork
Plastic wrap – if no bowl lid
In a mixing bowl whisk together: Greek yogurt, apple cider vinegar and, Worcestershire sauce. Add salt, pepper, and any additional seasonings (see OPTIONS) to taste. Toss in the frozen peas, onions, cashews, and broccoli. Add any family favorite mix-in options. Grab a spoon to sample your creation. The Broccoli Pea Salad is ready to serve. Be sure to check out our tips, below.
3 slices Bacon, cooked, cooled and crumbled
Pecans or Almonds
Mayo -instead of Greek Yogurt
Rice vinegar -can replace Apple Cider Vinegar
- For a thinner sauce base, do not thaw and drain the frozen peas.
- Mix the peas in before serving, for added ‘crunch.’
- The Broccoli Pea Salad is best right after it is made. I suggest refraining from making it the night before, unless you place the peas and bacon (if using) in it right before serving. The bacon will become intense the longer it sits, overwhelming the Broccoli Pea Salad.
