pea shoots

09May08

last saturday at the farmers’ market i picked up these lovely pea shoots. i hadn’t tried them before but decided to pick them up. when i got home i looked at a few recipes and decided to use them in a salad. it looks like they’d been good in a stir fry as well.

with the bunch that i purchased i made two salads. one was a combination of pea shoots and lettuce with a vinaigrette and grilled chicken breast, the second just pea shoots with a homemade caesar dressing, homemade crostini, and shredded chicken.

the pea shoots are sweet and remind me of eating snap peas right off the vine from my grampa’s garden when i was a kid.
