I get a lot of questions about the topping on my Green Pea Salad.

I’ll let you in on the secret – it’s Miracle Whip salad dressing.

You can also use mayonnaise and it’ll be just as delicious.

Did I mention this salad is delicious?

At one family reunion, I was sitting near a couple of ladies who were eating my Green Pea Salad.

One of them asked the other if it was supposed to be a dip or a salad?

She said, “I”m eating it as a salad! It’s so good!”
