A healthy spruced-up version of classic Pea Salad tossed in a creamy Greek yogurt dressing with lots of fresh herbs and smoked cheddar cheese. Tangy, delicious and all made in one bowl in about 20 minutes! Vegetarian, Vegan adaptable.

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • pinch of cayenne (optional)
  • 1/4 cup red onions, diced
  • 1/2 cup celery, about 2 stalks, diced
  • 1/2 cup smoked cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes (or swap out other smoked hard cheese, or vegan cheese)
  • 1/2 cup fresh tarragon and parsley mixed
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint
  • 2 cups peas, petite frozen and thawed (quick thaw by running cool water over the frozen peas in a colander) or use blanched fresh peas.

Instructions
