Herbed Pea Salad with Yogurt Dressing

Sometimes near the end of the week I will get home from work and rummage through the fridge for a quick and easy dinner. Often times this produces a meal that consists of lowfat pepperoni wrapped around baby carrots with a side of left over rice. But not tonight! I knew I had some left over salmon and a sweet potato ready to go. I just needed a veggie. Since its summer I decided that a nice cold pea salad would be amazing. A tasty side dish in 5 minutes flat?? Now we’re talking!

Serves 2

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups frozen peas and carrots thawed

2 Tbsp. minced red onion

2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro

1 Tbsp. sliced almonds

2 Tbsp. plain greek yogurt

2 tsp. dijon mustard

1/2 tsp. Worschstershire Sauce

1/4 tsp. curry powder

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Combine first four ingredients in a medium sized bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients to make the dressing. Mix the dressing with the pea mixture and chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.
