Crunchy Green Pea Salad

Crunchy Green Pea Salad

This wonderful green pea salad has the perfect combination of textures. It's creamy and that's one of the first rules for comfort food. It's yummy and that's definitely another rule. On top of that, it makes vegies (a not so comfort food) yummy so it gets extra points and that's why it's on the comfort food recipe site!
