This Pea Salad with Shrimp recipe is a super easy side dish that's perfect for any gathering! It's light and creamy and your family will fight for seconds!
Defrost the peas the night before in the refrigerator or in a colander under running cold water for a few minutes. Do not microwave the peas to defrost them, this will ruin the texture
Drain peas and then pat dry to remove excess water. Place into mixing bowl.
Add shrimp, water chestnuts, and green onion to the bowl.
Stir in mayonnaise. Start with a scoop or two and mix it. Add additional scoops as needed until you get the consistency you want. You want it the be lightly dressed without swimming in the mayonnaise (unless that's how you like it!).
