Broadway Pea Salad


This is the pea salad served at Clinkerdagger’s restaurant in Spokane. I worked there in 1985 for about 6 months and use several of their recipes.

  • 1

    Place the thawed peas on paper-towel lined pans and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes to purge excess moisture from the peas so as not to dilute the dressing.

    Blend mayonnaise, sour cream, pepper and salt.

    Combine remaining ingredients gently together and toss with blended dressing.

    Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Stir before serving.
