Recipe by True Texas
This is my sisters recipe for Pea Salad, she likes to make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Just another note: personally I use mayo instead of the Miracle Whip, but that is our preference. I make this salad at least once a month for the two of us and I use one can of peas, and a small amount of dried onions (raw onions bother my stomach), and just use two eggs. I was also thinking that those new cheddar crumbles would work great in this recipe. Hope you enjoy.

Very good! I used canned Lucerene baby peas and used relish instead of dill pickles, just a personal choice.Mix the dressing into the salad right before serving so it doesn't get watery. Thanks for posting.
