Pease Porridge Hot...

Green Peace Salad

This is not a porridge but a salad
that I had some time ago at a party.  It was absolutely scrumptious and reminded me of the old nursery rhyme.  It consisted of green peas, salad leaves of different kinds and very thinly sliced cabbage dipped in hot water and drained.  The dressing was a unique combination of blended paneer, yoghurt and a dash of mayonaisse.  I could have easily finished the whole bowl by myself, but manners prevailed.

The Recipe:  1 large bag of mixed lettuce leaves, seperated according to colour and shredded; 1/2 a cabbage sliced very, very fine; 1 cup green peas, boiled.

For Dressing:  1/4 cup paneer, mashed; 1/4 cup yoghurt; 1/8 cup mayonnaise; sugar, salt & white pepper to taste.  Blend together till creamy and keep aside.

Dip the sliced cabbage for one minute in boiling water, drain and plunge into cold water to retain crispness.  Drain thoroughly.  To assemble place boiled peas at bottom of large, salad bowl.  Surround with different coloured shredded lettuce leaves.  Place the cabbage on top of the peas.  Pour the dressing over.  Mix just before serving and eat as an accompaniment to any meal.
