  • Ready In

  1. To make dressing: Whisk wine, oil and mustard in a small bowl until smooth. Stir in shallots and dill and season with salt and pepper.
  2. To make salad: Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and cook, partly covered, until potatoes are almost tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Add peas and cook until heated through, 1 to 3 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Add lemon juice and toss to coat.
  3. Toss potato mixture with dressing. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve within 1 hour.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the dressing (Step 1) for up to 1 day.
  • Note: One pound of peas in the pod yields 1 cup shelled peas.

I would add much more chopped onions and celery; or add chopped bacon if ham is not available; One could also add chopped broccoli or other veggies; One could add yogurt and mayo together as an alternative.
