Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm!!! I had to take my photo before I ate this whole bowl!! I LOVE this salad! I used a 16 oz package of peas because that's all I could find and it worked with the recipe. I used 1/4 tsp pepper and 1/4 tsp Lawry's Seasoned Salt. Thank you, Thank you for this recipe!!!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, add the first 4 ingredients; stir to combine.
  2. In a smaller bowl, add the mayonnaise and sour cream; stir to blend.
  3. Spoon the mayo mixture over the pea mixture; gently stir to coat.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. This tastes better to me chilled so I let it refrigerate 4-6 hours before serving.
