This creamy pea salad is a classic side dish. Perfect with ham and great at potlucks.  Made with just a few ingredients: peas ham, cheese, onion and Mayo; it’s always a hit.


  • 2 cans sweet peas
  • 4 eggs, diced
  • 7 oz cheddar cheese, cubed into small pieces
  • 4 tbs dill relish
  • 6 tbsp mayo
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • optional: 1/3 cup finely diced onion (I leave it out as not everyone likes the onion)


  1. Drian cans of peas VERY well and add to large bowl.
  2. Spoon relish into the bowl, squeezing out as much of the juice as you can.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredient and mix till everything is thoroughly coated with the Mayo
  4. Refrigerate covered until ready to serve.
