Icebox Pea Salad

Refreshing cold, good end-of-summer salad; creamy and light onion flavor.  I first had this at a local coffee shop as a quick lunch and knew instantly I had to recreate it!  This salad I could take on a picnic, a light summer dinner party, or if I’m hosting a tea party.

Icebox Pea Salad - The Kitchen Bistro

2 servings

2 cups frozen peas
1/4 cup + 2 TB ranch dressing
4 chives or 2 scallions, chopped
Lemon zest, a little (half or whole lemon)
Salt and pepper

Mix everything together and hold in the fridge till ice cold and the peas defrost [although the salad would be good with crunchy frozen peas]

* Scallions are a stronger onion flavor while chives are a milder flavor
* You may not need all the dressing (or need more) depending on your taste
* I love making this in the morning or the night before and let it sit and stew; the salad gets utterly cold and the flavors meld together
