Snow Pea Salad with Lime and Ginger Dressing
1 lb of Los Angeles Salad Company Snow Peas
A bunch of radishes (about 9), sliced
A bunch of scallions (about 8), sliced
1 cucumber, finely diced
Juice of 2 limes
Zest of 1 lime
2 tablespoons of minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1. Plunge the snow peas in a big pot of boiling water and cook for about 3 minutes, until they get a little tender and turn bright green.
2. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the snow peas into an ice bath – a bowl of ice water that shocks the peas, stops the cooking process, and locks in the great green color. After about 3 minutes, strain the peas and place them in a big salad bowl.
3. Thinly slice a bunch of radishes (about 9 radishes total) and a bunch of scallions (about 8 stalks, only using the white and light green parts). Add them to the salad bowl.
4. Chop the cucumber into very small pieces and add them in the bowl, too.
The salad part’s done! Just four ingredients!
On to the dressing, with these 5 ingredients:
o Juice of 2 limes
o Zest of 1 lime
o 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
o 1 big handful cilantro, finely chopped
o 1 tablespoon olive oil
Mix it all up, pour onto the salad and toss, toss, toss. It ends up being a very pretty salad!
Keep it up, David!
