My dear daughter Luanne is always asked to make the English Pea Salad for Thanksgiving or any other family get-together. Mainly, because that was the first time her in-laws had ever eaten it and they completely fell for it! LOL I decided to give her a break this year for Thanksgiving ... especially since I had just made some myself. This is one of those quick and easy dishes you can make in just a few minutes but is very delicious too! The amount of each ingredient is a matter of taste. We like a lot of crunch, sweet pickle and cheese and like it very creamy too!

Place peas, green onions and chopped sweet pickles in a large bowl.
