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

MY REVIEW

This only gets 5 stars from me when made right -- LEAVE THE PEAS FROZEN TO SERVE! I get rock star reviews everywhere I take it! My dressing is a little different (no onions or bacon, a few different proportions, etc), but the dressing is inconsequential. The shock and awe is the frozen peas! Kick it up a mile and try it this way. Your guests will love you! Remember to bring copies of the recipe! You won't have any left when the meal is over, guaranteed.

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.
