We all really like this recipe. It's light, cool, and great for a summer meal!
1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen peas, thawed (and when my garden starts producing peas, I will be putting them in fresh!! I've also used canned peas.)
1 1/2 c. chopped carrots, uncooked
1/4 c. finely chopped onion
2/3 c. mayonnaise
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. sugar (I use fructose)
1 tsp. dill weed
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 small can tuna (I put 2 cans for a more filling dinner main dish, and maybe add a little more mayo)
NOTE: Add up to an additional cup of mayonnaise if salad is not served immediately.
You could use 3 cups of thawed frozen peas and carrots combination instead of using the fresh carrots.
One cup of cooked chicken, cooked beef or sliced cheese may be substituted for the tuna.
Yield: 8 to 10 servings.
