Happy #TastyThursdays! Today, Chef Pace is going to share this cool simple salad that can easily be made any day. Perfect for a busy gal like me!
This salad is basically like spring & summer in your mouth: snap peas, fresh fine herb leaves, creamy feta, fresh squeezed lime juice. Can you say refreshing?!
Plus I love all of pastel hues that the finished salad creates. We recently visited Suzie’s farm in San Diego just on the Tijuana border. You can basically pick the snap peas when they are younger which makes them flatter and sweeter or you can let them grow a bit longer until the peas inside get fatter and starchier and shell them like English peas. The possibilities are endless! – Chef Pace of Taste of Pace
