This was delicious! I cut the recipe in half for just my husband and I, and we still had a lot of leftovers. I only did about 4 oz of peas, since 5 just seemed like a LOT. I used a red bell pepper instead of green and regular onion in place of the green onion. I also opted for the baby corn nuggets (from a can) instead of frozen corn. Such a simple salad, but it really tastes great! I'd make this again.

My family, including 2 teenagers, loved this salad! I found this while looking for healthy salad recipes after getting home from vacation. After 10 days of dinners out, pizzas, and snack foods, we desperately needed a week?s worth of salads, but I wanted to keep it interesting.I made it exactly as printed, except I used "lite" Ranch dressing and Mayo made with olive oil, to reduce the fat, calories, and cholesterol in the dressing by about 1/2. It was just the 4 of us, so we had some leftover. Still crunchy and delicious the next day.With the sliced eggs and cherry tomatoes on top, it makes a beautiful presentation, too. Once the veggie mixture is prepared, it is quick to put together, so it would be perfect for entertaining. Serve it as a side salad or a main dish with garlic bread. Yum!
