Fast Lane Green Pea Salad

Friday, 5 Feb, my kitchen: peeling peas is highly recommended

serves 4

  • 600 gr of fresh peas
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 or 2 shallots (or spring onions)
  • a hand full of mint leaves (or more)
  • olive oil,salt, pepper

Peel the peas and steam over boiling water for 5 minutes. In the meantime chop shallots and mint leaves, grate the lemon to get the rind and squeeze it. Make a vinaigrette with the lemon juice, salt, pepper and the olive oil. Let the peas cool until lukewarm, then combine all ingredients.

Variation: You could top this salad (which will be best in spring when you find the first fresh peas on the markets) with some ricotta cheese, divided into flakes.
