Even people who don’t like peas love this crunchy recipe, including my own children. I love the fact that it‘s so easy and makes a refreshing alternative to more traditional salads. A friend gave me the recipe years ago and I’ve been making it ever since. --Laurinda Nelson, Phoenix, Arizona

MY REVIEW

I had a salad like this at a potluck years ago and have been looking for a similar recipe ever since. This is fabulous though I may add less mayo next time.

Wow! What a fun & unexpected salad! I did substitute vidalia onion vinaigrette for the Italian dressing because that's all I had on hand. It still tasted great & I will be making this often. Great summertime dish.

Everyone loves this salad....to change it up a bit, I use Honey Roasted Peanuts.

This was my contribution to "salad day" at work. It got rave reviews. Instead of cooked and crumbled bacon, I used Hormel Real Bacon Bits. I plan to add some cubed or shredded cheddar cheese the next time I make it.
