Green Pea Caesar Slaw Salad

Spring has arrived, and it is time for planting flowers, herbs, and vegetables. When I planted my rose bushes and miniature rose plants, I learned that it's good to plant a lavender plant in between the roses because it's a good pest repellent. As pest repellent, it's good for planting near cauliflower and cabbage, too. Lavender can also be planted with herbs such as rosemary, basil, and thyme. These aromatic herbs provide an inviting garden of scents and can add flavor to your favorite recipes.

If you are looking for a refreshing spring garden salad but don't have access to fresh garden vegetables, use refrigerated packaged salads and frozen vegetables. The following Green Pea Caesar Slaw Salad makes a good Spring mix:
1 pkg. Spring salad mix
1 pkg. broccoli slaw 
Approx. 2 T. Feta cheese
1/2 pkg. frozen green peas, thawed
Creamy Caesar Dressing

Mix all ingredients, and serve with Ken's 0g carb Creamy Caesar Dressing. I cook my frozen peas in the microwave for two or three minutes with 1 T. sugar and a bit of butter before mixing it in with the other ingredients. I also like to use Mixed Baby Greens for this salad. Any salad greens will work fine.
