    -Mar-'s Note:

    When I was visiting Granma, she took me to Willoughby House Cafe, Tearoom, and Gallery. Along with my sandwich and salad, there was a little cup filled with pea salad. They were so adorable and refreshing, I thought they'd be perfect to make for parties. Ranch dressing can be used instead of making a dressing.

      Great recipe! I found the wonton cups just adorable, and the salad was very fresh tasting. Tip 1: find a cup just smaller than your muffin tin. Lay the wonton wrapper over the muffin tin and gently press it in with the bottom of the cup. My toddler's sippy cup is the perfect size. Tip 2: if you're making these ahead of time, consider brushing the inside of the cup with a little olive or other light tasting oil - the oil will help stop the water in the dressing from soaking into the shell and making it soggy. Tip 3: an ice cream scoop is the perfect size for easy dishing the salad into the wonton cups quickly.

      I loved the combination of mayo, buttermilk sugar and vinegar. Tangy. Very tasty summer recipe. I'm going to try turning the pan over, greasing the outside of the cups and laying the wontons over that to bake. Maybe that will keep my shell a little tallker. Thanks for sharing.

      I am SO sorry for not rating this sooner - 5 stars!!! I CAN'T believe that no one else has tried/rated this, it's a keeper! I have made these several times now for potlucks/family get-togethers/office parties. I followed the recipe exactly as written - I learned the first time not to fill the wontons too early, as they get soggy - otherwise, perfect! Thank you for sharing :-)
