    This is a recipe that is done mainly by taste so trust your own tongue!!.... I was raised on this salad but for most people when you say PEA SALAD, they have never had it but it is really good and the kids LOVE's a good way to get kids to eat peas!..It is ALWAYS great for a picnic or is also a conversation starter as it is unique!..VERY important to keep this VERY cold and eat it cold!

      Good! Refreshing and different. I didn't have carrots and (oops!) discovered I was out of onion. I rehydrated about 1 Tbsp. of onion flakes before mixing them in. Probably used about 3 Tbsp of mayo in total. Good flavor; might add a little sugar next time (like in 7 Layer Salad).

      My being from the south also, it's amazing how popular this was when I was growing up (we had it at least once a week as a side-dish and at all picnics), but nowadays, it's just not that common. It's an awesome recipe that is sooooo simple, but yet good. My mom always used frozen peas, thawed by running under cold water and drain well, and I agree they work best; I'll definitely have to try the carrot addition as that's a new ingredient to this recipe for me. Give it a whirl and enjoy a true Southern dish.

      This is excellent! I used frozen peas that I ran under hot water & drained really well. I am out of onions (gasp!) so I used shallots - I think scallions would work well also. I added a bit of salt & a good dose of pepper as well. I'll be back to let you know what the rest of the family thinks. Made for PAC spring '08. :)
