  • “Loved it! A quick and easy recipe to put together and great for serving to a crowd. I made two lots of this, one large with ham and one smaller without, for the vegetarians present but added some sour cream and chive powder to the one without ham to boost the flavour a smidge. Both were well received. Due to general fussyness of the masses to raw onions I substituted finely chopped spring onions instead and this was eaten by the fussiest adult and passed muster. Please see my rating system: a lovely recipe for mass entertaining and I liked very much that this had mayo but not in bucketloads to swamp everything else so that the taste of the peas and ham were primary. That’s worth 4 excellent stars to me. Thanks!”
