I make this quite often for family gatherings. We use the tiny English pea variety instead of regular peas.
And like was mentioned by Constance, we add grated or shredded chedder cheese to our dish.

Always a favorite!

The pea salad I always had was cooked macaroni, diced onion, peas salt and pepper to taste. I think I will give this recipe a try though.

2 Tablespoons pimento, chopped fine
2 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish, drained
1/2 cup Hellman's mayonaise

Depending on who would be at the table - sometimes the pea salad would also include diced red onion and/or celery.

I've made this using frozen peas and while it tasted good, it didn't taste the same. I'll stick to Grandma's canned peas.
Michael - I "love" your type salad. I would eat this with-out anyone else having input. Unfortuneately, I have no one else locally to share this with. My own family folks are a fast food bunch, and things like "peas" are not an option. But feel free to post this type recipe as "I" will eat it :-)
If eating tasty stuff is a sin, I am certainly going south.

Caspar, you might like this one

Crunchy Pea Salad

10 oz frozen tender tiny peas (rinsed/steamed with hot water but uncooked)
1 cup diced celery
1 cup chopped cauliflower
1/4 cup diced green onions
2 T sliced pimentos
1 cup creamy garlic - or ranch - salad dressing (we use Marie's brand)
1 cup roasted cashews (or sunflower seeds, macadamia)
1/4 cup crumbled bacon
1/2 t Dijon mustard
1 small clove garlic, minced

Combine ingredients, toss gently, and chill. Can add more garlic and squeeze of lemon juice. OK to make ahead and marinate for a couple of days.
Kool Aid - Think before you drink.

Mudbug - Since you crossed the line into a "frozen" vs. canned peas... you have my vote, and I *wiil* eat this soon and post an opinion. I will say now though, that since peas are a veg that "many" won't eat, I don't expect anyone else but me eating... but thanks.... I "love" these type recipes.... just have to scale down to one :-)
