SANDRA’S SPRING ASIAN SWEET PEA GREEN SALAD with HONEY-LIME DRESSING

I created this vibrant and crunchy salad today,
mainly from "green" ingredients I had on hand;
it’s superb and will fare well alongside any main dish...
Servings: (8 to 10)
Prep: 10 Mins.

INGREDIENTS

Dressing:
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons freshly-squeezed lime juice

Salad:
6 cups romaine lettuce, torn
1-1/2 cups frozen sweet green peas, thawed, and pat dry
1 (8 oz. can) sliced water chestnuts, drained, pat dry, and cut into slivers
3 ribs celery, diagonally sliced
4 long green onions (green parts only), sliced
Handful of fresh parsley, chopped
--(Or, 2 tablespoons dried parsley)

Garnish:
--Toasted sesame seeds

METHOD

In a medium glass (or non-reactive) bowl, add and whisk together all the dressing ingredients. Toss in all salad ingredients, and fold to combine. To serve, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. ~ Enjoy!

I served this salad for lunch with homemade meatloaf, and smashed potatoes with sour cream and chives topped with mushroom-sage gravy. We'll also have this same salad this evening for dinner with barbecue pulled pork burgers.
