Green Pean Salad is a perfect make-and-take side dish for any BBQ or family gathering. It takes minutes to put together and will really please a crowd.

One of my favorite dishes to bring to family gatherings is Green Pea Salad.

Not only is it easy to make and take, but it’s also one of my most requested dishes.

And I’m betting nobody else will bring a dish like yours.

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!”
