    Okay so I used to love my grandmas recipe. Well she passed a few years ago [​IMG] My uncle got my granparents house and moved all the cooking books and recipes to the basement. Well it flooded!! And its lost. I have looked online and well nothing is near to it. Something is always missing and I cant put my finger on it. So if you can please post yours my family will be happy to try them and pick a new family pea salad. Thanks for your time in reading my post ~

    This is a favorite!

    Peas and Cheese Salad

    15 ounces canned peas, drained (I prefer frozen peas, about 2 cups, lightly cooked, drained, cooled)
    1 cup cheddar or colby cheese, shredded
    1 cup celery, coarsely chopped
    1/4 cup onion, minced (adjust to taste)

    1/2 cup salad dressing or mayonnaise
    2 teaspoons sugar
    2 teaspoons milk
    salt and pepper to taste
    1/2 cup bacon bits (optional)

    * Place peas, shredded cheese, celery and onions in a bowl.
    * In a separate bowl, combine dressing ingredients. Pour dressing over pea and cheese mixture and blend well. If desired, fold in bacon bits.
    * Cover and refrigerate before serving. Doubles easily.

    This recipe has more than peas - but we love it!

    1 can early peas
    1 can white corn
    1 can french green beans
    1 small jar diced pimentos
    1/2 cup chopped celery
    1/2 cup chopped onion

    drain all of the canned vegetables and mix everything together.

    1/2 cup white vinegar
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/4 cup salad oil
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper

    Pour the dressing over the vegetables and let marinate in the frig for a few hours.
