Yes, we are a little addicted to fresh peas, but it’s the season and we can’t resist them! If you can’t get hold of fresh peas: this salad is also tasty with frozen peas. Serve this salad for lunch or as a starter, or for dinner as a side with meat or fish.
Starter or side dish, serves 4
Action Time: 15 minutes
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
9 oz/250 g (fresh shelled or defrosted) peas
2.5 oz/75 g feta cheese
1 large handful of dill, chopped
1. Put the onion in a large bowl, add the red wine vinegar, olive oil, and some salt; set aside.
2. Dice the cucumber, to about the size of a pea. Cook the peas in lightly salted water for a couple of minutes until the peas are just tender, check regularly. Drain in a sieve and run under cold water. Drain again. Add both the cucumber and the peas to the onion and toss.
3. Transfer the peas to a serving platter, crumble the feta cheese over, and add the dill. Season to taste with freshly ground pepper and some salt.
