Question Extending Split-switched outlet

I want to add three new duplet outlets in series to my existing kitchen outlet (20 amp circuit) which is a split switched outlet (food disposal, switched, and dish washer, non switched). I want the three new outlets to all be non switched outlets. Any diagram as to how to do this. The split switched outlet is a 12/3 feed from the switch.

Receptacles should not be on the dishwasher/garbage disposal circuit. Best practice is to run a new dedicated circuit or redo the DW/GD so it uses one side of the 12-3 and the receptacles use the other side of the 12-3.

Thanks Ray, I'll reconfigure the circuit.
