  • Summary

    This Peas and Shrimp Salad recipe is a super easy side dish that's perfect for any holiday get together! It's served cold because it's creamy with sweet green peas (I totally used frozen!), shrimp, and cashews and water chestnuts which make it crunchy. Make this if you need a tasty and light Thanksgiving side dish!

    Ingredients

    • 1 large bag of peas (I believe its a 32 oz. bag), thawed- but do NOT use the microwave to thaw them!
    • 1 lb. of cooked baby cocktail shrimp (if these are not available, you can dice larger shrimp like I did)
    • 1 can of water chestnuts, chopped
    • 1 bunch of green onions (white and green parts), chopped
    • 3/4 of a can of salted cashews (I chopped them in this but my mother in law leaves them whole- they taste delicious either way!)
    • Salt and pepper
    • 1/2 cup - 3/4 cups of mayonnaise
