I have kept this green pea salad simple with just the addition of cheddar cheese and egg. However, you can go ahead and add bacon bits or chicken or any other meat you have in hand to make it even more delicious. The best part about this recipe is that I have replaced the mayo dressing with a healthier and more nutritious dressing using Greek Yoghurt. And trust me – you will not miss the mayo in this one!
