Cold Green Pea Salad

1 package frozen green peas, uncooked and thawed
3 boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup Ham, cut into small cubes
1/3 cup Cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes
Grated cheese for topping


Directions:
Mix all together. Let set in the refrigerator before serving. Top with grated cheese.


Another, and very special cold dish I make for special occasions, is "Cold Cucumber Soup" - a strange concept, but wonderful flavor!

Cold Cucumber Soup

3 large peeled and deseeded and pared cucumbers
1 small container of sour cream
1 med. onion
1 clove garlic
3 cups or 1 box of chicken broth
2 Dashes Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbls. of flour
1 Dash lemon juice
2 tsp. ea. thyme & oregano
Parsley for garnish
Salt & pepper to taste


In a pot combine cucumbers, garlic, onion, chicken broth, flour, spices, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce. Heat on medium and stir until the cucumbers and onion are soft. As soup begins to slightly thicken, use a stick blender, or process in a regular blender in small batches until it's smooth. Adjust salt and pepper to your taste. Chill well before serving. Garnish with a few chopped chives, parsley, and a dollop of sour cream.

One of our favorite meals in hot weather is a cold plate. Everything cold except I make fresh potato salad and serve it warm or room temperature. The rest of the meal consists of sliced ham, turkey, cheeses, crackers, sliced tomatoes and we usually have melon of some kind or strawberries or cold fruit of whatever is on hand. Of course we hve plenty of iced tea.

Gotta throw in one more summer favorite. Love, love, love swordfish or brook trout fillets, cubed and put on kabobs, grilled over charcoal with cold cucumber slices on the side as a counterpoint. The fish should be simply seasoned with salt only, and let the smoke do the rest. Ok, throw in a glass of whatever your favorite cold drink is. For me, that would be milk, ice cold and from a glass, not plastic drinking vessel. Although I have to say, pan fried brookies dredged in flour and cooked in a couple inches of hot oil until golden brown on both sides, with a bit of ketchup on the side is pretty hard to beat. Love that crispy skin and orange meat.
