Nice without large yokel (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

peasant

Here is my best explanation:

'yokel' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'nice without large' is the subsidiary indication.

'nice' becomes 'pleasant' ('pleasant' can be similar in meaning to 'nice').

'without' suggests deleting specific letters.

'large' becomes 'l'.

'pleasant' with 'l' taken out is 'peasant'.

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for peasant that I've seen before include "Lowly tiller of land", "Poor worker on the land", "Country labourer", "Poor rustic", "Agricultural labourer of low status", "Bumpkin", "Poor country worker", "Member of rural underclass", "Farm worker - ignorant person" and "Poor smallholder".)
