5 Easy Recipes, #2
Even my Dad liked this delicious salad and he doesn’t like anything! If you want to get your kids to eat their sweet peas this is the way to do it! Visiting the Melady Cooks food blog has been a real blessing in my life. I’ve found so many awesome recipes on her website, including this sweet pea wild rice salad, that I don’t know what to do with myself.
Take a look at what my friend Audrey from the Melady Cooks food blog had to say about this magnificent recipe:
I served the salad with corn dogs (a future post) for dinner the next evening and we loved the flavors. Very different, since we rarely have wild rice unless it’s in a soup or stuffing. The peas and wild rice were the predominant flavors, with the other vegetables a nice background. Whoever thought to add the teriyaki sauce gets a thumbs up! Nice touch! The salad is a charming change from our usual pasta type salads. I will definitely be making this again!
I made this yummy sweet pea wild rice salad for a church potluck meal last Sunday and all who ate it came back for seconds 🙂
