I loved the almonds in this salad. I subbed celery for the water chestnuts. Great way to eat peas. Thanks!
Yummy side with tonights Swiss Steak and also a great way to use up some water chestnuts that I've had for awhile. It has lot's of great flavor and looks quite pretty on the plate, doesn't take a whole lot of time to make either. :D
Delicious! I picked this recipe since hubby loves peas and he loved this salad too. I left out the sour cream since we don't eat it. Will make this one again. Made for 1-2-3 Hits Tag Game 2012.
