Cold Pea Salad w/ Wasabi

Our son has CF and trained to be a chef. After working seven years at Google with Bon Appetit' who contracts there, he's moved on to COSTCO where he supervises the meat department, ordering, packaging and cooking the food sold in one of their stores. This pea salad is a family favorite. Adjust the heat of that last ingredient to taste, particularly if serving to children.
