    Very good. I planted sugar peas for the first time and was looking for a way to use them. I didn't have horseradish mustard so just used regular mustard and a teaspoon of horseradish. I also added a teaspoon of Splenda as we like a little bit sweet salad. Thanks for sharing.

    I have a new love for peas. This was a hit with everyone, although my 21 month old could taste the horseradish. I used sugar snap peas and didn't bother with cutting it up.

    Interesting salad. Nice flavor combinations. Found that it made a little more dressing than I wanted to put on the salad. The rest of the dressing worked excellent on cooked veggies and sandwiches. Thanks for sharing Secret. Tweeky, a.k.a. Judi
