Looking for a quick side dish that won’t break the calorie bank, but is still full of flavor?  This salad is just the thing.  

Not everyone has a garden of fresh peas or the ability to find them in the grocery store, so feel free to substitute thawed frozen baby peas.  To make it even faster, you can also use roasted red peppers from a jar.
