Texas Pea Salad

For a nice change of pace try this salad. It is best served very cold.

2  cups of frozen peas ( you can use fresh just cook them for less time)
 1/4 of a white onion grated
1 cup of grated cheddar cheese
3/4 cup of mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste

Put all of the ingredients in a glass or non reactive bowl except for the peas.  Cook the peas in salted boiling water until they are just tender.  Drain and put the hot peas in the bowl. Mix with a spatula until all the ingredients are mixed. Keep the peas whole do not crush them. The hot peas will melt the cheese and the mayonnaise will become a cheese dressing.  Put the bowl in the refrigerator and chill for at least 2 hours.

Great on a picnic or a BBQ!  Just keep it cold.
