This salad is so fresh and green. A clean and bright side dish that works perfectly with grilled or smoked meats or other summer meals. I like to bring this to cookouts and potlucks because its quick and inexpensive to whip up and its always a hit. Its not the same old boring dishes but the ingredients are familiar enough so that its not intimidating.
The ingredients are:
1 pound frozen peas, thawed by rinsing and drained well
2 stalks of celery, diced
2 scallions, diced
a small handful of spearmint and parsley
1 lemon, zest and juice
3 TBSP olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix thoroughly and serve immediately or if making ahead pack the dressing separate and dress just before serving.
