Milk Street Facebook Community member Betsey Walker Culliton, of Austin, Texas, makes this simple no-cook salad featuring frozen peas and fresh mint. She aptly describes it as “springtime in a bowl.” The saltiness of the feta is a perfect complement to the sweetness of the peas and freshness of the mint, and its creaminess pulls together all the elements. If the peas are damp after thawing, be sure to pat them dry, as excess moisture will dilute the flavors.

Tip

Don’t forget to grate the zest from the lemon before juicing it. It’s much easier grate zest from whole fruits than from ones have have been cut and squeezed.

Really surprised that nobody commented on this one yet...
Fantastic combination of flavors that complement each other extremely well.
Very refreshing and light but with more substance than lettuce.
Might just be my new favorite healthy snack.

I totally agree with Guenther! We loved this lemony fresh salad! It kept well too for a few days in the fridge as I doubled the recipe!
