Quick & Simple Green Pea & Cheddar Salad

This is the simplest recipe for pea salad. My mom use to make this for us when we were growing up, now I make it for my family and everyone enjoys it. It only takes a few minutes to throw together, but adds a nice touch to many meals, especially bbq's and family gatherings. I prefer to make this with green onion, but I have used white onion, or even no onion, depending on what I have on hand. I hope you enjoy the recipe.

Simple, delicious! We really enjoyed it and will make it again and again. I used low fat mayo and it was fine, added a light sprinkle of salt and pepper. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Pick a Chef (PAC).

The only thing I would add to this recipe is to say "Salt and pepper to taste". Thanks for sharing the recipe.
