Dill Pea and Cucumber Salad

16 Reviews

The freshest spring side, dill pea and cucumber salad ohsweetbasil.com vegetarian, dairy-free, gluten-free

While I was pregnant last year I didn’t really experience cravings. I never do. Food doesn’t exactly appeal to me when I’m expecting (and if you missed our whole hyperemesis story feel free to catch up here.) but once I start into the morning sickness phase I do have aversions. Junk food doesn’t sound very good instead I want fresh foods and I was so bummed to have missed out on pea season. So this year I’m making up for it with this dill pea and cucumber salad.

There are two other salads I want to indulge on as well, watermelon salad and the BEST caprese salad with pistachios, but I’m being a little slow on the watermelon since it’s something that didn’t go very while I was sick so I need a little time. It sounds good, I just, well I remember things too clearly still. ANYWAY, let’s move on. Get this salad on your dinner table and enjoy the heck out of it like we did.

Can You Substitute White Vinegar For Apple Cider Vinegar?

Yes, you can make the substitution, but the taste may be just a little bit different due to the difference in acidity between the two.

Are There Health Benefits To Eating Cucumbers?

Cucumbers are very high in nutrients and low in calories.


Are Peas High in Protein?

Peas are a pretty good source of protein.

There are 8 grams of protein in 1 cup of peas.
