    This recipe works for a crowd. Use defrosted frozen peas (very tasty) and add some chopped celery if you have it. Make a dressing of milk, light mayo, a bit of cole slaw dressing if you like for added creaminess and sweetness, and a bit of dill relish or chopped dills with some of the juice. You can also throw in a can of potato sticks to add some crunch. This should be served chilled.  -  26 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    i made this recipe for my food technology assignment at school. It tasted great and looked good too! i added kidney beans as well, which added some extra colour and increased the fibre content. Thanks for the recipe! Sarah  -  10 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I wasn't too sure about the peas, so I used a can of corn (I love tuna and corn). I wasn't crazy about the lettuce, but I guess I'm not used to having it in pasta salad. This made a nice light lunch. Thanks!  -  22 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
