Crunchy Pea Salad

After I had this salad in two different restaurants—one here in Michigan and one in Florida—I finally decided to try my hand at duplicating the recipe. My family thinks I succeeded!

    I liked this, but I did change a few things. I subbed in light Greek yogurt for the ranch, & for more texture I added chopped fresh celery. I omitted the celery seed because I don't like it. I also used cashew pieces instead of peanuts, but almost any nut would taste good.
