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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil eggs and dice in small pieces.
  2. Chop onions and cheese.
  3. Drain peas and add to onion and cheese.
  4. Mix in Miracle Whip, as much as it takes to make creamy. Add salt and pepper.
  5. Place all in a 2 quart bowl.

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.

Wow! What an easy and delicious salad! I like peas in a salad and really enjoyed this one. I was out of dills, but had dill relish at hand and also subbed mayo for the Miracle Whip. I cubed the eggs & cheese really small, about the size of the peas, a personal quirk but it makes a nice presentation. Thanks for sharing your sisters' recipe! I will be making this salad again, but not just for holidays. It's too good to wait that long.
