Smashed Peas

St. Patrick’s Day may be over, but who says the green has to stop?

I was so surprised with the color I got from these smashed peas- it gave off such a bright green! What can I say? I’m a sucker for pretty colors. I’ve made this several times now and I found that this works as a dip, side dish, or spread (as pictured on top of my Irish Soda Bread). Besides the color, I love the refreshing and cool temperature. It makes me crave summer. Pool-side snack, perhaps?
