F U E L E D F R I D A Y is brought to you this week by our good friend, Robin at CaliGirl Cooking. Now that spring has arrived, we wanted to share with you a perfect spring recipe. Crunchy Pea Salad with Prosciutto is not only the quintessential spring dish, it’s also a perfect side to add to your Easter menu. And, Robin took the classic version of the recipe and lightened it up a bit!
This Crunchy Pea Salad with Prosciutto recipe uses mostly Greek yogurt for the “dressing” although we still throw in a teensy bit of mayo just to get that less tart, more savory flavor in there. We add shallots and garlic powder for that extra hit of flavor, and throw in some water chestnuts for some extra crunch. Crispy prosciutto saves the day (of course) and adds the saltiness we need to make this the perfect trifecta of flavors. And if you’re fretting about obtaining the peas, have no fear because frozen is definitely the way to go. Difficulty level = 0. So, go ahead and make this spring classi and enjoy!
Eat and enjoy!!
