Pea and Potato Salad

Pea and Potato Salad

Pea and Potato salad is an essential for summer dinners, picnics and potlucks. What’s not to love about a simple mixture of soft potatoes, crunchy celery, sharp onion and creamy mayonnaise? Nothing! But as delicious as this classic is, variations that add fresh vegetables and other healthful ingredients can be even tastier when done right. Our recipe uses organic extra virgin coconut oil instead of heavy mayonnaise to create a light and lively potato salad that just might become the hit of your backyard barbecue. The addition of fresh peas not only makes the salad more visually appealing, the extra vegetables add more nutrition and dietary fiber to this tasty side dish. Serve with all your favorite grilled meats and seafood or top with a handful of walnuts or chopped chicken and serve it over a bed of crisp greens for a complete meal.
