In pot of boiling salted water, cover and cook peas until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Drain and transfer to bowl of ice water; stir until cold. Drain and pat dry. Cut diagonally in half; set aside.

Dressing: In bowl, whisk together basil, olives, tomatoes, oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate peas and dressing in separate airtight containers for up to 24 hours.) Add peas and cheese; toss to coat.
