I think I might have found another regional specialty, one that might not exist in the Northeast U.S.
My fiance asked me to make pea salad as a side dish for Christmas. He is from the Midwest and says it is very common there. My friend from Georgia is also familiar with this dish.
Apparently, pea salad is mixed sweet peas, chopped cheese, choppd egg, bacon, pickles, and a mayo dressing. There are variations of course.
I am not sure I find the sound of it so appealing, but it is a Christmas sidedish for many.
Have any of you ever heard of this or tried it?
I love finding regional American foods.
