This is good, but why make so much dressing and only use 2 tbsp of it? That's a waste. The pea & peanut salad on this website with zesty Italian dressing & mayo is easier & tastes basically the same.

Tasty and different, the peas, bacon and cashews really go together wonderfully. This is really a 4 1/2 star recipe and we make it regularly for family gatherings where it's popular with everyone.

2 green onions, thinly sliced, is what's missing

The stars aren't working. I want to give this 5 stars and it is stuck on 1. EXCELLENT salad. It sounded good but far exceeded my expectations.
