Recipe by Dapanamakidd

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).
