I love this one, Uncle Bill. I, too left the peas whole, as that's how we like them. I also threw in some shredded cheddar cheese. It is very refreshing and I will be using it often for picnics this summer! Thanks for a winner!

A wonderful salad. I have a recipe similar to this, and to tell the truth, I love this one better as it uses frozen peas. I think the mayonnaise and sour cream flavored with dill and onion is terreific. I didn't use light sour cream or mayonnaise, as I wanted to try the recipe as written, but next time I think I will experiment. The bacon gives a nice crunchy flavor that goes well with the peas. Thanks for posting your tried and true recipe. I will be using this again.

Delicious recipe. The only change was to leave the peas whole instead of chopping. We will be making this recipe often. Thanks, "Uncle Bill."
