    Want recipe for a pea salad

    I use to have a great recipe for pea salad and I can't find it. It came from Southern Living magazine @29 yrs ago.
    Would anyone have one they would share with me?

    The only one I know is the one my mother had. I don't have the complete recipe as far as quantities because Mom didn't write them down, but I will try. She took a can of green peas (drained). she would dice up 2 or 3 slices of Velveeta cheese, add a small amount of celery, an apple (diced) and one medium dill pickle (diced). Once this was all ready, she added mayonaisse and a little sprinkle of sugar. It was delicious. Good luck.

    This recipe is from Southern Living April 1984
    Cheddar-Pea Salad
    1 (16-ounce) can small English peas, drained
    1 cup cubed Cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup chopped celery
    1/4 to 1/2 cup sliced pimento-stuffed olives
    1 hard-cooked egg, chopped
    1 tablespoon grated onion
    1/4 cup mayonnaise

    Combine all ingredients; mix well. Cover salad and chill at least 1 hour.
    Yield: 4 servings. By Edna Mae Gibson, Marietta, Ga.

    The November issues has a three pea salad recipe. Do you remember some of the ingredients?

    A layered pea salad recipe that I have tried and love is "Grandma Johnson's layered salad" at http://southerncookinglight.com/2011/11/23/grandma-johnsons-layered-salad-2/

    My daughter does a simple but tasty chick pea salad. I don't know if that qualifies but here it is. This salad is best refrigerated for a couple of hours before serving.
    4 coloured peppers sliced and chopped (2 inch pieces approx.)
    1 red onion halved and sliced thin
    The florets from a broccoli (or half a cauliflower if perferred)
    2 cans of drained chick peas
    Toss all the ingredients and add Italian Oil and Vienegar Dressing to taste
    You can substitute any other raw vegatables that you like in as well, sometimes carrots slices, sliced baby zucchini etc.

    How about this one. It's from Cooks.com and is pretty close to the recipe I liked and cannot find:

    GREEN PEA SALAD
    Printed from COOKS.COM
    2 (10 oz.) pkgs. frozen tiny green peas, thawed
    1/2 c. chopped celery
    2 green onions, chopped
    10 slices bacon, cooked, drained, crumbled
    1/2 c. cashews
    Boston or Bibb lettuce leaves
    Parmesan cheese

    DRESSING:

    1/2 c. sour cream
    1/2 c. mayonnaise

    Toss together all ingredients except lettuce. Spoon salad onto lettuce leaves, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

    I got this recipe from my DMIL in TX, 40 yrs ago.

    7 Layer Pea Salad


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Layer in an 8 x 8" pan or 9 x 13" if making for a crowd. The amounts are up to you but each layer should cover the one under it. Layer in the order given....top ingredient will be on the bottom.

    Lettuce, chopped
    Celery, sliced
    Onion, sliced
    1T sugar
    Frozen peas, thawed
    Mayo sprinkled with sugar
    Sharp cheese, shredded
    Bacon Bits

    You might need to pack it down as you go. Forget about it on the Mayo level. Cover with plastic or foil and refrigerate at least 8 hours. This is so surprising.

    I use a bag of frozen peas, they hold up better.
    A small container of lite/nonfat cream cheese. If i need more to blend i will add ranch dressing.

    Diced cheese of any flavor is always good. Purple onions are showy, add salt and pepper to taste.
    sunflower seeds too.

    A quilting I will go......

    My mother was from PA, she took 2 cans of sweet peas, cut up Candied Dill Pickles, soft boiled eggs, mixed with mayonaise. At Christmas, she added pimentos. I love this recipe, but I am in FLorida and for the life of me I cannot remember the Brand Name of these pickles. She was from Apollo Pa, and bought them there. If anyone knows of the brand please let me know. Good Luck in finding the right recipe for you!!

    I am from New England and never heard of pea salad until we started travelling the US and saw it on buffets in restaurants. We called it Peas n Cheese until we learned it was Pea Salad. Yummy, don't know why it hasn't spread to the northeast.
