North Phoenxi Moms Blog - Foodie Friday - 4 Pea Salad - Cover Image

Happy Spring!!!! I absolutely adore this time of the year! As do my kids. We are slightly obsessed with Easter decorations, daffodils from Trader Joes, and those candy coated chocolate Cadbury Mini Eggs. You know the ones in the purple bag!?? To be honest I actually have a couple sitting by my computer that I am enjoying currently!

I love a good salad that I can entertain with. Whether I am bringing it over to someones house or serving at my home. This is a perfect salad for any spring or summer gathering. And of course the perfect side for Easter Brunch this year. I constantly have people asking me for this recipe. So here it is 🙂

This recipe calls for Creme fraiche. You can buy this at Trader Joes or it is sooooo easy to make. Here is SEE Salt’s recipe for Homemade Créme Fraîche.
