Make sure to serve this in a deep glass bowl, so you can show off the colorful layers. This is especially good the day after.

Wow, this was sooo good! I never would have guessed the flavor that comes from this salad. It is hard to stop eating! I even hate peas, but gobbled up every bite without picking them out! I made this for a family picnic and people kept saying, ooh who made the salad?? That was a great compliment! I can't wait to make it again!
I made this for Mother's Day. I made it with Splenda instead of sugar. I also added pepper jack cheese. Excellent.
Very good. I served this at my son's Baptism party alongside ham and Crock Pot Hash Browns Casserole. I made it in my clear glass punchbowl so the layers could be seen. Leftovers kept well for about three days, until they were gone.
