I do NOT recommend that you make this for a party or gathering of some kind. When you are done preparing it, you have to taste it to ensure it is worthy of putting your name on (like any good chef would). One taste bite leads to a second, third,,,,,,, next thing you know, you have polished off more than half of it. I stuck to the recipe and it is fantastic. My wife HATES peas. I mean won't eat them if they are the only thing left between her and starvation. So I gave her a blind taste test and even she LOVED it. Read More

This was very good and was well received at our Easter dinner. It is one of those salads that gets better the longer it sits. Leftovers the next day were just as good or even better than on day 1! Thanks for he tasty easy recipe tstancell! (Note: I used lite mayo and red wine vinegar. I also used the regular cheaper raisins in lieu of golden raisins) Read More

Made the recipe per instructions. Found that it was incredibly dry. Did not have any additional mayonnaise, so I added an additional 3/4 of a cup of sour cream. Made it much more moist and creamy. Delicious. Read More
