ere's what I discovered with the peas: I like them, I really do. But I don't LOVE them. I can eat a certain amount, and then I'm DONE. Kaput. Flavor over. I can think of other food items I feel that way about, so it's not like I'm picking on the poor pea alone. It was just a bit of a reminder that this is not going to be the first vegetable I reach for...
That being said, I happily incorporated peas into an egg salad I was hankering for (now there's a flavor I do not get tired of very easily...) and, harkening back to the salad in my initial pea ponderings, I decided that some radishes would complement nicely as well. Very simple, very good. A little salad, with my usual bowl of blueberries, and supper was well accomplished!
Egg, pea and radish salad
Serves 2 as a side, or 1 as a meal
4 hard boiled eggs
4-6 radishes, halved and sliced
1/2 cup blanched peas
2 Tbsp mayonaise
Salt and pepper
Chop the eggs into eighths, and add the other ingredients, stirring gently to combine the mayo thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper, and enjoy!
Next up, smashed peas. Time to go Brit, just in time for London 2012!
