Fixed this simple tasty salad for my Bunko group. I used sweet white onion and rice wine vinegar. Had a great flavor! This will be my only pea salad from now on! Thanks Parsley!
I made this for Thanksgiving.I used shredded cheddar cheese, 1 package of precooked bacon instead of ham, 5-6 green onions instead of red onion and cut back on the mayo and used a little bit of sour cream. I also added chopped green pepper and sliced almonds. Thanks for the great recipe.
Loved this salad and it only gets better with some chilling time, I used fresh garden peas that I steamed first, added in 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, used seasoned salt and also did some amount adjustments, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten")
