Sweet Pea Salad

A friend who brought this to our den's 4th of July picnic one year, and I had to get the recipe from her! It's so delicious. It makes a lot, so I like to take it to potluck parties and large gatherings. And there's never any leftovers, and I'm usually asked for the recipe--which are good signs that others enjoy it as much as we do.
