In earlier times this would have been made with bottled or tinned garden peas – nowadays I make this with cooked frozen peas.
The peas and Gouda cheese make this salad sweet and creamy.
Around 400ml of frozen peas -cooked and cooled
4 hardboiled eggs – chopped
3 large gherkins – chopped into little cubes
200g of Gouda(or similar) cheese – chopped into cubes
1 small onion – chopped fine
2 tablespoons of Mayonaise (full fat is best)
1 tablespoon of Greek style yoghurt
Salt & Pepper to taste.
In a bowl mix all the vegetables and the cheese together.
Add the mayonnaise and yoghurt and mix well.
Add salt & pepper to taste.
Serve with hot or cold roast meats or smoked Polish sausage.
I think the addition of 2 or 3 strips of chopped herrings as in my herring salads would be good.
Will try this later and let you know!
