• I, too, love this salad, but don’t have it often. It’s funny how some dishes have a strong sentimental memory attached to them. isn’t it? Food is such an emotional thing for us foodies. 🙂

    • I agree Doreen. I believe many have strong memories of family and friends that is centered in some way around food.

    This looks like another one I need to try…I’ve never heard of it! But it’s also pretty and what a great memory of your dad:)

    • Hi Jacqueline, It is a great dish. The flavors makes it and the easiest thing ever to put together too. 🙂

  • I have to admit I’ve never eaten pea and cheese salad. It passes my first test: simple with a limited number of ingredients. So I just may give it a try!

    • Oh then you must give this a try Jeannette. When you do, let me know what you think. 🙂

  • Catarina Alexon

    Also love pea and cheese sallad, even though I have not had it for a long time. Was trying to think if my father had a favourite salad, but I don’t think so. He wasn’t really a healthy eater. More haute cuisine.

    • It’s am old fashioned salad that never seem s to go out of style Catarina. I’ll bet if you ask your Dad, he would have an answer to that question. 🙂

    I dare say mixing the peas up with all the other yummy goodness makes them much more palatable 😉 Peas on their own don’t get much love.

    • Indeed that is true. This dish really brings out the flavors of all the ingredients. Give a try Jeri. I think you really enjoy this one. 🙂

    I’ve never had this kind of salad before. I do like peas by themselves though. So I’m sure this is another winner!

    • It is a winner Krystle, If you like peas, then this recipe has your name on it. 🙂

  • Marla

    Love this salad. I have a similar recipe that adds peanuts and bacon. It’s wonderful stuff! Great post.

    • Thanks Marla and welcome. Adding peanuts and bacon sounds great. I’ll have to try that some times. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    This isn’t one I have ever done. Cheese does make everything good though.

    • I thinks so too Jon. I love cheese in just about everything or just by itself. 🙂

    I haven’t had this salad in ages. It totally brings back memories (good ones) :). It also makes me think of Russian salad, it’s more complicated because it has more ingredients, but like this one sits in the comfort food category.

    • It a very old fashioned salad but It’s one I love for all the flavors and the memories Debra. A nice Russian salad is pretty darn good too. Do you have a good recipe you’d like to share?

      • Debra Yearwood

        I do. I have to find it but will send it along.

  • Shirla

    Those oldies but goodies! You know what I miss? Jello “salad!” Hah!

  • I’ve never had pea and cheese salad but I love peas and I love cheese so this looks perfect!

  • Never heard of anything like that. In fact I don’t think I’ve ever heard of pea and anything salad. I’m intrigued.

    Sounds like something to add to an upcoming family picnic, Susan. Love all the ingredients and the ease of it.
