Creamy Crunchy Pea Salad

I like this tasty side dish since there's not much chopping involved. Vary the type of nuts to suit your family's taste.—Leann Jasper, Newmarket, Ontario

    I have made this many times and its great! I have found adding roasted peanut instead of almonds and I also add shredded parmesan cheese makes it even better. If there are any leftovers they are better the next day and the next day. Delicious!

    Absolutely wonderful! I'm a perfectionist and I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe!

    The combination of cauliflower and peas is great in this salad.

    This was a really easy salad to put together. I didn't have enough ranch dressing, so I added some mayonnaise to the mixture. I also added cheddar cheese cubes, some chopped red onion and sprinkled sunflower seeds on the top. Loved it!

    I've made this salad for years and it's always a favorite. I like to top it with sliced almonds. Yum
