Simple & Healthy Peas Salad with Herbs

Τhe Smashed Potato
If you are looking for an easy and quick recipe for a delicious peas salad with herbs then here you are! This one will be definitely your favorite! You can use frozen vegetables and this is the secret tip for a "right in time" salad.
I used to serve it with my fish filet, my vegetarian burgers, and now is my special salad for my vegan steak. Perfect for cold and warm days, give it a try and you won't lose!
Most of the time, I use frozen peas with carrots and corn, which I can find in almost every grocery shop. But if I don't, I add canned corn. I always manage to have frozen vegetables in my freezer and some canned in my pantry, so I can use them any day at any time.
