Ingredients Directions
  1. Place the peas in a large saucepan with water, and add the salt. Place on the stove and bring to a rapid boil.
  2. Remove heat, cover, and let stand for 1 hour.
  3. Return peas to the stove and bring again to a boil. Partially cover and boil until peas are tender. This usually takes about 15 minutes.

  5. Add the olive oil, vinegar, and garlic. Puree until smooth.
  6. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the rest of the peas, the pureed peas, and the remaining ingredients except for the lettuce leaves and crackers. Mix well.
  7. Cover and chill overnight or for at least 6 hours to let the flavors mix.
