Uncle Bill's Petite Pea Salad

Recipe by William Uncle Bill

A very light salad to add to any dinner meals. I developed this recipe in 1995 and it has been a highly rated salad.

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!
