    NorthwestGal's Note:

    My friend gave me this recipe several years ago, when our families attended a 4th of July picnic together. I have made it many times since then, and it's always a favorite whenever I make it. The recipe makes quite a bit, so it's one of my favorite dishes to take to potlucks, picnics and other gatherings with large crowds. The recipe would fit a lot of party themes, as the ingredients represent various continental cuisines, from the Asian inspired chestnuts to the Brazilian cashews. But it is the smokey Dutch-influenced gouda cheese that adds a wonderful Mediterranean flair to this great picnic salad. Cooking time does not including chilling time (as that can vary greatly).

    1. 1
      Place peas, chestnuts, celery, onion, and cheese in a large salad bowl.
    2. 2
      In a small mixing bowl, stir together the sour cream and sugar until well blended. Add the sour cream mixture to the salad, then season with salt and pepper. Toss thoroughly with a large spoon.
    3. 3
      Place in refrigerator for several hours (or overnight is ideal). Add the cashews just before serving, and toss well to thoroughly blend all ingredients.

      I also made this with one bag of peas and it is delicious and easy to put together. My Dalmatian Monte also loved the photo-taking process and got in on the pict! Made for ZWT #9.

      Delicious! This is a wonderful salad full of all kinds of delicious goodies. I scaled the recipe down, but after tasting it -- I should have made a full batch since it keeps so well in the fridge. The only change I made was to sub smoked gruyere as that is what I had on hand. Will definitely make this salad again - DH & I loved it! Made for ZWT9 Scandinavia, August, 2013.

      THIS IS THE BEST SALAD I HAVE HAD IN A LONG TIME!! Such great flavours and textures. I find myself randomly craving it throughout the week. It keeps well in the fridge so if you make a big batch it will last you a few days. So yummy!
