Blue Ribbon Recipe

This pea salad recipe is super simple. Very few ingredients create a fabulous side dish. The mayo and zesty Italian dressing are tangy mixed with the sweet peas. Red onions and cashews add a nice crunch. If you are making this for a crowd, you'll want to double the recipe. Everyone will want a second helping! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
