Smells Like Salad

This was delicious used as a tostada topping. (I'm always on the search for taco/tostada toppings and this one fit the bill.) I replaced the red onion with a shallot from the garden, used Aleppo pepper powder, toasted cumin seeds for powder, and skipped the lemon pepper replacing with ground white pepper. I love lemon, so I added some lemon zest, too. This is also a great filling for sandwiches and really delicious with fried or scrambled eggs. Prepared for Billboard Recipe Tag Game. Thank you for sharing!

What a great appetizer for a hot day. We loved it! I left it with lots of texture and used a full 1/2 teaspoon pepperflakes. I'll make this again for sure.

This is amazing, I love it! It tastes great, lovely tang. This was enjoyed over crackers and it made for a nice light lunch.

What a novel idea to make a "guacamole" using sweet peas instead! At first I wasn't sure what to expect, but found that the results made for a pleasant surprise. I used lime juice instead of the lemon and because I hate to waste anything, I grated the zest and added some of it to the recipe. We had it with crackers and it was fabo! Thank you Luvcookn for sharing!
