Sounds like what my mother used to make but she added cheese to hers.

This is similar to my recipe, but a little bland. I also add some shredded cheddar cheese to mine, and also add a little sugar and apple cider vinegar to the mayonnaise.

An old standby from childhood. We had garden fresh peas this week and it was a great way to use them.
