This recipe works for a crowd. Use defrosted frozen peas (very tasty) and add some chopped celery if you have it. Make a dressing of milk, light mayo, a bit of cole slaw dressing if you like for added creaminess and sweetness, and a bit of dill relish or chopped dills with some of the juice. You can also throw in a can of potato sticks to add some crunch. This should be served chilled. Read More

i made this recipe for my food technology assignment at school. It tasted great and looked good too! i added kidney beans as well, which added some extra colour and increased the fibre content. Thanks for the recipe! Sarah Read More

I wasn't too sure about the peas so I used a can of corn (I love tuna and corn). I wasn't crazy about the lettuce but I guess I'm not used to having it in pasta salad. This made a nice light lunch. Thanks! Read More

Great basic recipe my entire family enjoys. (Note: I don't add cheese and I use frozen peas instead of what recipe calls for.) Read More
