Spring Pea Salad with Mint and Lemon
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.
