*This uses canned peas.

1 cup salad dressing (Miracle Whip or Mayonnaisse)

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp mustard

2 tbsp cream or milk

Salt and pepper to taste

Two 20 oz cans peas, drained

1 cup diced Cheddar cheese

1/4 cup onion, chopped

3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped

1. Mix salad dressing, sugar, mustard, cream, salt and pepper.

2. Combine peas, cheese, onion and eggs.

3. Fold dressing into pea mixture; chill before serving.

Serves 8

Linda's Note: With today's cans of things smaller in size than they used to be, I suggest using three regular-sized cans of peas. You can also use peas and carrots in the can if desired. Also, the eggs are optional. I use Mayonnaise and the dressing ingredients, but it is up to you. If using Miracle Whip, you can probably leave out all but milk and salt and pepper.
