Paula,I make a pea salad,but I don't use eggs:I use 2 cans of Lesueur petite peas, 1/4 cup chopped onion,2-3TBSpoons very finely chopped celery,2-3TBSpoons of Mayonnaise.It is so refreshing on hot,hot days.

Great, except the eggs need to go and the pimento is not optional. I also add a little more Mayo! I'll have to try the cheese/velvetta!

I usually put in some velvetta cheese cut into small squares. Really brings out the taste of the peas.

My mom made this salad for years and passed the recipe down to our family. But we add cheese chopped into small pieces to ours. It's very good. She always used Velveeta, but I've experimented and used different types of my favorite cheeses. All are tasty.

Nice simple twist on a dish from my childhood. Very economical also.

For some reason I love this dish! Goes great with the meatloaf.

Good recipe. I add diced water chestnuts to this as well for some crunch.
