Do you like storing foods for Winter? One of my favorite veggies to store for Winter is pea. We have already bought, shelled, put lots of peas in freezer in plastic bags. However, I couldn’t wait for cold months to use up one of the bags. I use peas to make a heartwarming dish with meat or chicken pieces in Winter, but I love it cold in Summer. As it seems we are going to wait for yellow leaves and light breezes for some more days, I thought this cold pea with potato would make a perfect side dish when served with Chicken Fillets. This is also a great vegetarian dish.
