Comments

When we made this at a Volunteer training for the Food Bank Demo's; we used frozen peas and just rinsed it under water 1st in a colander. They loved it! We served it with the FH Ranch Dressing,

We substituted sour cream for the mayo in the dressing and added more of the spice to add more flavor.
