Green Pea and Radish Salad

Eating in season is a noble endeavor. But what produce shall one eateth during a long Wyoming Winter? Costco to the rescue [trumpet sounds]! I have been quite impressed with the organic and "healthy" food selection at Costco of late. Though the Costco nearest us is 70 miles away, it's well worth the trip. A few weeks back I purchased this HUGE bag of frozen organic peas! Needless to say, I have had to get creative with how I prepare them or get the old "peeeeas agaaaaain!" So here is a little salad that's refreshing, crisp and a little out of the ordinary.

In a medium bowl, toss:

2 cups thawed frozen PEAS
4 RADISHES diced
4 ounces (approximately 1/2 can) WATER CHESTNUTS diced
1/2 cup diced HEARTS OF PALM (optional) (found at Costco)
1/4 crumbled bacon (optional)

In a small bowl combine and then toss with pea mixture:

3 tablespoons VEGENAISE eggless mayonnaise
1-1/2 teaspoons ONION POWDER
1 teaspoon Bragg's APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
SEA SALT to taste
PEPPER to taste

Enjoy!
