"I got this recipe from my buddy Wes which was a dish that his grandmother always made. People are sometimes afraid to try this 'cause the ingredients may seem strange, but I'm telling you, it's AWESOME! And once they try it they can't get enough. Also, don't be afraid of the canned peas, they really do work better than fresh or frozen. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for larger groups. I hope you enjoy!"

"I'm sorry, but after growing up on canned peas, I have no such thing in my pantry & really don't want 'em, so I stuck with the frozen ones (at least this first time around, although now that I've ready your intro, my curiosity will probably get the better of me, & I'll have to TRY it with the canned stuff)! Anyway, we loved this salad ~ Easy to make & very easy to enjoy! Will be making it again, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed as a THANK YOU for playing with us in Please Review My Recipe during the recent tour]"
"I've been craving Pea Salad for a couple of weeks and decided to look up a recipe to take to Easter dinner.. this is the ONE! I changed two things, I added 1/3 cup Mild Cheddar cheese (I'm a cheese lover) and substituted in frozen peas (which I always prefer). I love the bite of the pepper and onion, gives it the right amount of kick. This recipe was so simple, I'm glad I found it! Two thumbs up (:"
"Yum! I used frozen peas but otherwise made as directed. Simple, fast, and tasty. Thanks KLBoyle for a nice side dish. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag."
"I love this little salad! I love the sharpness that the red onion brings, and I love the crunchiness of the English cucumber. I also used frozen peas since I didn't have any canned peas, but, personally, I didn't think it changed the taste all that much."
"I loved this! I made this exactly as posted, except I decreased the salt to 1/8 tsp and used light mayo. Since the peas were canned and I didn't buy no-salt-added peas, I thought they would already have enough salt. I also drained my peas before adding to the mayo, red onions, and cucumbers. Great new way to eat your peas! Thanks for sharing."
