. . . Not just any peas! I'm craving some Dill Pea Salad! For those of you who don't know what that is, it is yummy dill-y deliciousness. There's a little place out on the east side of town called The Cottage Bakery & Cafe. My mom introduced me to it. It was a quick walk from here old office building and she used to frequent the place for lunch.
Well one glorious day, she brought home a doggie bag from her lunch trip there. In it was a fantastically delicious Thai Chicken Wrap. She'd been raving about how good it was and I was curious to see what she meant. She graciously allowed me to try it and . . . YUM!!! I wanted one too!
So one day we decided to meet for lunch and The Cottage Bakery & Cafe is where we went. Of course I ordered a Thai Chicken Wrap . . . but what to choose as my side? Following my mother's suggestion, I requested their Dill Pea Salad. Yumminess! I order it every time I go there!!
Unfortunately, that little cafe is no where close to my house and I very rarely have occasion to venture in that direction, so I haven't been there in a while. Sad me :o(
This morning I woke up with an insatiable craving for that pea salad. But luck was not on my side and I have been without a car all day. So I began perusing the internet for recipes. I found and printed out a few that sounded like they could yield similar results. I've tried one already, and it's very good. Not the same, but still good.
However, I will continue my quest to find the perfect Dill Pea Salad recipe. My burning desire has been lessened, but it's far from being put out. Oh, Dill Pea Salad of my dreams . . . where are you?
