Pea 'n' Peanut Salad Recipe

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
