Tips on spreading the dollops of mayonaise over the peas and spread with a rubber spatula. This works much better than putting all the mayo in the middle and trying to spread it out.


I use this same recipe with one difference. I use a large bag of frozen sweet peas, I put them in the salad frozen. It helps not to crush the peas when spreading the mayo on top of them. I usually make this salad right before going to bed, put it in the fridge overnight and its ready in the morning. Then I usually mix it up before serving. I am always asked for the recipe, and all of my family members insist I make this for every family function. You can also use the frozen peas the same day as the function, It only takes about 4-6 hours for the peas to thaw in the fridge.


Loved this recipe and so did my husband. However, does anyone have any suggestions for spreading the mayo? I had a tough time with that. Thanks!
