Step 1

Everything is pretty much just stirred together but it's very important that the peas be as dry as possible to prevent the mayo from watering.

What I do is, after draining them well in a colander I lay the peas out on a jellyroll pan that has been lined with several layers of paper towels (then just fold them up in the towels to transfer to the mixing bowl with the remaining ingredients.) *Can add a little chopped sweet pickle or finely diced raw onion, but we like it better without.

Garnish top with an additional sliced hard-boiled egg, if desired. Keep refrigerated.
