Nice without large yokel (7)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'yokel' is the definition.
'nice without large' is the wordplay.
'nice' becomes 'pleasant' ('pleasant' is associated in meaning with 'nice').
'without' suggests deleting specific letters.
'large' becomes 'l'.
'pleasant' with 'l' taken away is 'PEASANT'.
