Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

The veggie amounts may be adjusted slightly and the sour cream mixture may be doubled for a creamier salad if desired, plan ahead this salad needs to chill for a couple hours before serving, and may be doubled sucessfully, make certain that the peas are completely dry before added to the salad

Well...I'm not going to give this a starred rating as I think I messed it up...As I started to make it I discovered I didn't have any dry ranch dressing so used a chive and green onion mix and added dried dill. I let it sit overnight but it just didn't taste right. I'm sure it was the mix I used. I also used the feta and a chopped tomato. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
