Sweet Pea And Onion Salad

I have been making Sweet Pea and Onion Salad since my college days at the University of Houston. It is a very simple salad and it packs a fantastic taste. During college I used to work in a delicatessen where I learned how to make a lot of non-traditional southern dishes. Sweet Pea and Onion Salad was one of them. Every time I make this salad I'm asked about the ingredients. Once someone samples it, there is never enough to go around. So please add this simple dish to your family's dinner table and I assure you everyone will enjoy it!
