I Do Like Green Peas & Ham Salad

This is perfect for this week as I have a lot of left-over ham from Easter. If I had a garden, I might have some peas too. But frozen Petite peas will work for me. LOL!

I Do Like Green Peas & Ham Salad

4 cups shelled fresh tiny peas or frozen peas.

4 eggs, hard boiled and sliced (see below)

2 stalks celery, diced.

2 green onions sliced.

1 Cup diced fully cooked ham.

1 cup of Cheddar Cheese cut into bite size cubes, or shredded cheese.

1 cup of Dairy Keen Ranch Dressing or more if you desire.

Place eggs in medium saucepan, cover with 1 inch of water, and bring to boil over high heat. Turn heat to a simmer, cover and let simmer 13 minutes (10 minutes at low elevation). Meanwhile, fill medium bowl with 1-quart cold water and ice cubes. Transfer eggs to ice water with a slotted spoon, let them chill 15 - 20 minutes. (The cold water stops the cooking process and thus stops the green tint around the yolk.) Shell the eggs and slice them.

For the FRESH peas: In a medium saucepan bring some water to a boil, add peas and simmer for 3 minutes. Drain them and then put them into a bowl of ice water to cool.

Drain the peas when cold. In a large bowl combine all ingredients and stir to combine. Chill about 2 hours or until ready to serve.

** You can use frozen peas. Just add them and they will thaw as the salad chills.
