Pea & Cheese Salad

Click to Print This Recipe

  • 2 cups dry macaroni, boiled and drained
  • 2 cups frozen peas (10 oz box)
  • 1 cup chopped celery (about 3 stalks)
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise

Boil the macaroni in plenty of salted water. When it is tender, drain it well, and rinse it in cold water, to cool it down. I put the frozen peas in the colander first, and then pour the boiling water and macaroni over the peas. This melts the peas, and cooks them just enough to be good in the salad. While the macaroni is boiling, chop the celery and onion and shred the cheese if necessary. Combine all of the ingredients in a big bowl and mix them very well. Transfer the mixture to a resealable container, or clean glass jar. Chill until serving time. Some folks use velveeta type cheese, smashed to bits with a fork. I find this a lot of work myself, but it is the traditional cheese used in this salad. Serve this anywhere you would macaroni or potato salad. It also makes a good main dish salad for lunch. Makes 8 side servings or 4 main servings.
