Spring pea salad

This recipe is everything a spring salad should be: easy, fresh, and light. The raw peas are naturally sweet and have a little bite, which gives the salad a nice texture. It's a great side dish to pair with grilled pork tenderloin or hamsteak. 


  • 1 cup fresh shelled peas
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Juice from half a lemon, plus zest
  • 4-6 mint leaves, chiffonade
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Add the peas to a bowl and toss with olive oil and lemon juice. Mix in zest and mint leaves and season with salt and pepper to taste.
