This one is not for the kids! Super spicy and perfect for those hot summer days when you want something besides potato salad to take to the neighborhood BBQ.

I've made this salad alot down through the years. Celery is a nice addition to it. Other cheeses are also great in it. Cheddar feta. Use what you have. Read More

This salad is great! Unfortunately I didn't have any pickle relish but I didn't really miss it. This wasn't too terribly spicy... just enough spice for me. If you think of the heat of the salad in terms of salsa grade spiciness I'd say this is medium. What a great alternative to the ordinary picnic salads! The sweetness of the peas really compliments the spice of the pepper. Read More

Yum! I used frozen peas thawed. I needed low fat so I left out the cheese and egg and used only 1 Tbs. of mayo with 2 Tbs. of plain yogurt seasoned with a little Old Bay. Threw in a can of tuna too. Read More

This is fantastic! The only thing I did different is to add quite a bit of chopped dill pickle instead of the relish. Read More

I really love this. I wanted to make for my lunches so I added a can of chicken. I left out the onion and used red pepper. I used frozen peas and that worked great. I also used cheddar cheese. Can do just about anything to make it your own. A really great recipe. Read More

I haven eaten a canned pea since I moved away from my parents' house when I was 19 and I wasn't about to revisit them so I used a one-pound bag of frozed peas thawed instead. This didn't seem particularly spicy to us maybe my jalapeno was abnormally mild even though I didn't take the seeds and membrane out of it. I used a combination of reduced fat mayo and fat free sour cream and did not add any cheese only to keep the weight watchers points down. I cut up a big ol' kosher dill pickle instead of using relish and I hesitated about putting in the egg but compromised and used two hard boiled egg whites (I fed the yolks to the cats). We loved the combination of flavors but next time I'll make sure my jalapeno has some punch. Thanks so much for the post Shunpr! Read More
