What’s For Dinner: Pioneer Woman’s Pea Salad

I knew I had to try the Pioneer Woman’s Pea Salad as soon as I saw the recipe and I am so glad I did.

I have made it twice in the last few days. The first time I took it to a party with a cucumber salad, both salads were served with hot dogs. Delicious way to make hot dogs just a little bit healthier (if that is even possible!). It perfectly filled the spot of a pasta salad.

The second time I served it with homemade pasta… not so healthy. Serving it with pasta was a weird combo, I wouldn’t do that again. But it was perfect for leftovers in my lunch the next day.

I didn’t have a red onion so I used a sweet white one instead. I also left out the parsley, because, yuck.

I do not consider anything the Pioneer Woman cooks as healthy. But at least the calories on this were doable; however, I was a little be surprised to see that one serving was 186 calories… for a dish of peas! You could very easily lighten it up though, light sour cream, light mayo, less cheese, turkey bacon, etc.
