Hi, Bonjour

When you say ”mayo”, is it the real mayo Hellman’s or is it salad sauce like ”Miracle Whip”?

Quand vous écrivez Mayo, est-ce bien la vraie mayonnaise Hellman’s ou la sauce à salade Miracle Whip?

Thanks!

Merci!

    Hi! It is Mayo- like a Hellman’s or something similar, not Miracle Whip!

Excellent recipes.

    Thank you!

I made this for lunch, it was amazing…I did cut the recipe in half (only 2 of us here) next time think I would put a can of tuna or salmon in…

    That would be delicious! Great idea. Thanks for sharing! So happy that you loved this recipe!

Canned peas when fresh are available? So sad!

    I thought this sounded yummy except for the canned peas. What about frozen peas or fresh.

      You can use fresh peas for this! I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

Very good

Delicious! Subbed frozen peas for canned (PREFERENCE), but Other than that it was PERFECT!

    So happy that you loved it!! Best leftovers, right?! 😉
