Summer Macaroni Salad with Peas and Radish

Garrison Wayne


I loved Pea Salad as a kid. We always had radishes on the relish trays that were popular in the 60's. I have been cooking for 40+ years, and I never thought to feature peas and radishes together. I will tell you, that the sweetness of the peas, and the distinctive heat of the radishes make a very tasty gastronomic experience. This is very easy to make. It is easily doubled for a larger salad. I cook for two, so I like when I can scale down a recipe for a manageable portion. Serve this the next time you have a BBQ.
