Green Pea Salad With Cheddar Cheese

Rated as 4.43 out of 5 Stars

"This easy pea salad has sweet, crunchy pieces of onions mixed with creamy bites of Cheddar cheese. Growing up, a friend of the family made us this pea salad that we love to this day. It's just standard stuff: peas, mayonnaise, egg, cheese, and onion. That's it!"

Was out of mayo so made this with ranch dressing. Think it gave it the oomph it needed. Also added sweet pickles and garlic. Next time might use Velveeta cubes instead of cheddar. I am sure ...

I agree on using fresh or frozen peas. Otherwise made it as written and loved it!

I love it. I too used frozen peas but I boiled them for about 1 minute and ran cold water over them to speed up the thawing process. They didn't get a mushy as canned but just a tad softer,

I substituted 1/2 of the mayo for fat-free plain Greek yogurt and used frozen peas. I also added bacon bits. Excellent, will definitely make again!
