Easy Old-School Southern Pea Salad Recipe

I remember back in the day, my Grandmother would always serve us a delicious pea salad and it was a staple in our household since then and even until now. Usually, around summertime or once it starts getting warmer, a delicious pea salad is a must at every mealtime, and this year I volunteered to try and make it on my own. I wanted a simple but very familiar recipe that is sure to impress my family and give them one of the best mealtimes they’ve ever had as well. I browsed the internet and I found lots of recipes, but what stood out to me the most is this one by OLD SCHOOL SOUL FOOD on YouTube. It is so simple, easy to make, and requires only a few simple ingredients, and what makes this even better is that the taste is pretty similar to my Grandmother’s version.
