spring obsession: peas

Last Sunday, I went to a cook out and brought this delicious Spring salad.  I recently discovered I like radishes and I've always loved peas.  It went perfectly with the grilled lamb burgers and short ribs.  Plus it is so easy!  Enjoy.

Pea Salad with Radishes and Feta Cheese

juice of one lemon and one lime

2 teaspoons honey

2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil

salt and pepper to taste


4 cups fresh shelled peas (from about 4 lbs peas in pods) or 1 lb. frozen petite peas

1 bunch radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced

1 cup crumbled feta cheese (about 4 ounces)

1 tablespoon red pepper flakes


Whisk lemon and lime juice, olive oil, honey and salt and pepper in a small bowl.

Cook peas in a pot of salted water until almost tender, about 5 minutes for fresh or about 2 for frozen.  Drain, rinse under cold water, then drain well.  Transfer to a large bowl.  Add radishes, feta, red pepper flakes and dressing.  Toss. Season with salt and pepper. Divide salad amongst bowls and serve cold.  Buen provecho!
