This is a very easy salad to make and you can add almost anything to it. We like adding shrimp but you could use tuna or crab.

I love this recipe and make it often. I use green onions and make my ranch dressing from the envelope of Hidden Valley Ranch which tastes better than the bottled version in my opinion. Excellent salad. Read More

The only thing I changed in this recipe was the addition of snow pea pods instead of the grean peas. It was great easy and got lots of compliments. A great cold salad to take to picnics or BBQ's. Read More

My wife loved this. "Write it down before you forget it." is her highest compliment. Definitely pasting this to my electronic cookbook. I was out of ranch dressing so I had to do it with vinaigrette. It worked well. Next time I'll try it with the ranch. Read More
