Hello. I submitted this recipe and it should read DELUXE American cheese slices. 8 Slice package. It makes a big difference to use it. Thanks for looking.

Great recipe. I used cheddar and half mayo and half Miracle Whip. I added boiled eggs also. This was just like my Grandmothers. A great easy salad.

this recipe is good but add a few drops of Tobasco sauce and a few drops of lemon juice to kick up the flavor to overcome the blandness

I love love love pea salad and I had never made it myself till now. Stumbled upon this recipe and its yum! I did add broccoli just because my husband loves broccoli it did not over take the taste of the peas either. Good for a quick side dish! :)

I never even heard of pea salad till I moved to Indiana, so I have bought it a few times in stores and tried it in buffets here. I love it, so decided to make it and where else to go but allreciptes right? This one is a bit different than what I have gotten here in Indian but I love it. I took some advice and changed it a bit, used frozen peas ( 6 cups) and added half mayo and half miracle whip. Its delish.

This recipe does take you back to the day. But I have always added some horseradish sauce ( Woeber's ) to my Hellmans and also hard boiled eggs. I usually cube Velveeta too instead of the sliced cheese. It needs to marinate in the frig to get good and cold too.
