Looking for something a little different? This crunchy, chilled pea salad brings a light and tasty burst of flavour to your palette. Make it for your next braai, or enjoy it as a lunchtime staple
What you’ll need:
- 500g frozen peas (don’t thaw)
- 180 g chopped almonds (or choice)
- 1/2 cup chopped spring onions
- 200g chopped water chestnuts (optional)
- 2/3 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tsp mild curry powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
What to do:
This super-easy salad can be made ahead of time if you’d like – just add the nuts at the last minute. It will keep about a day in the fridge.
If you’re using roasted nuts, be sure to rinse off the excess salt just before use. Allow them to drip-dry in a strainer. In a bowl, whisk together the spices and mayo into a smooth dressing.
Now add all the other ingredients and mix well. Be sure to give it a taste and adjust the seasoning if needed!
Pop it in the fridge until you’re ready to serve. Stir in the nuts just before you bring it to the table.
Try pairing this tasty treat with tomatoes, avocado and chicken for a balanced, delicious meal.
