We used to have this salad quite often, as my parents liked it a lot. Just simple petite peas, pickle relish, pimentos, and cheese. I also gave a couple of variations you can try if you like.
Truly a comfort food that is a blast from the past. :)

How to Make Pam's PPPC Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium bowl, mix mayo (or Miracle Whip), vinegar and sugar. Set aside.
    Drain and chop pimentos, drain sweet relish and cut cheese into small dice slightly larger than the peas. Place those ingredients in the bowl, add the canned drained (Or frozen defrosted) peas (And add optional chopped onion if desired), mix well but gently to avoid mashing the peas. Taste and add salt and pepper to your liking. Refrigerate until serving.
  2. Note: If you are using the peanuts instead of the cheese, omit the cheese cubes and add 1/3 to 1/2 c. dry roasted peanuts and mix as before. I would not make this version much ahead of time or the peanuts will get soggy. Another option is to make the salad minus the peanuts and stir them in just before serving.
