March 2: Crunchy Brunch Pea Salad

This recipe comes from a friend, Marilyn, and was given to me many years ago.

1 c chopped celery
1 16 oz pkg frozen peas, thawed
1/2 c chopped pimientos
1 c cubed cheese (taco-flavor with peppers in good)
2 tsp herb dressing mix
2/3 c mayonnaise
1/3 c buttermilk
1 1/2 c herb-flavored croutons

In a large bowl, mix celery, peas, pimientos. In a small bowl combine dressing mix, mayonnaise and buttermilk. Beat with whisk until smooth. Fold dressing and cheese cubes into vegetables. Just before serving, fold in croutons. Garnish with parsley and twisted lemon slices.
