Green peas salad

The other day I was thinking about a new recipe, but for some reason it didn’t come together. I didn’t ”feel” the recipe. So I made another recipe, made pictures of it, wrote the recipe and followed up on some other work. A few hours later it was about time to make my own dinner. So I wanted to make something quick and something that wouldn’t take too much cleaning as well. I made this green peas salad and it was sooo good! This is such a typical example of how creativity can be blocked when you think about it too much. Anything you push, will not work. Creativity can’t be forced. Sometimes you just need to let go, pretend there is no audience, nothing to win or lose and bam creativity and great work will happen!

    Pickles seem to work wonders for this simple salad. Sweet pickles are mixed in with the peas and other salad ingredients, and pickle juice is mixed into the dressing.
