    Mayonnaise based salads are something my family has grown away from and I mistakenly thought its dilution with sour cream would change that. Then I found that I prefer pairing peas with an herb bolder than mint. Recipe is okay but I didn't prejudge recipe accurately enough to fit my family's taste buds.
