Yellow Split Pea Salad with Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette

This salad is haphazardly thrown together. I’ve begun my, “eat my way through my cupboards” spree so that I don’t have to pack any food. These yellow split peas have been sitting patiently for awhile now. They have a slight sweet taste which I think makes a perfect salad topping.

(PS-I had a post written about positivity and it didn’t feel right,it’s not there yet. So instead, I’m sending everyone a big hug and a lot of positive energy today.)

Yellow Split Pea Salad with Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette
Author: 
Recipe type: salad
Serves: 2
 
Ingredients
  • ½ cup yellow split peas
  • 3-4 handfuls lettuce
  • 2 ounces goat cheese
  • ¼ cup pecans, toasted
  •  
  • dressing
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
Instructions
  1. Sort through and rinse split peas. Add to a pot with water and bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and then let cook for 30-45 minutes. Split peas should be tender but still hold their shape.
  2. Once done, drain and let cool slightly.
  3. In a jar with a lid, combine olive oil, vinegar, honey, and mustard. Shake until combined.
  4. Toss split peas, lettuce, pecans, and goat cheese with a drizzle of dressing.
Notes
*I usually make a big batch of dressing and use it throughout the week. I’ll double and triple everything except the honey- which I usually add to taste for a hint of sweetness.
