Crunchy Pea Salad

Recently, we had another funeral at church and I brought a salad again.  I’m glad I looked through the salad recipes when I was home at my parents house over Easter, because I found some great ones to try and bring for this funeral and other upcoming funeral luncheons.  This crunchy pea salad came from the Catholic Daughters cookbook and looked to be full of midwestern goodness.  In recent years, I have heard references to ranch dressing being the Millennials’ ketchup and another friend reference moving back to our rural area from a more urban area and realizing how much ranch was in everything.  Since it is a dressing, it seems appropriate in a salad, so here we go with that.
