Little Green Spoon’s Pea & Feta Salad with Mint Pesto

This salad has the makings of a classic; it’s certainly become one in my house! Peas and mint are like two peas in a pod (pun intended). Pair them with some crumbly feta and crunchy toasted pine nuts and you’ve got one hell of a salad. Delicious at any time of the day and just as yummy as leftovers or a packed lunch.

Ingredients:

500g of Frozen Peas

50g of Feta

50g of Pine Nuts

For the Mint Pesto:

1 Large Handful of Fresh Coriander

1 Large Handful of Fresh Mint

2 Cloves of Garlic

1/4 Cup of Olive Oil

Juice of 2 Lemons

Coarse Salt

Step 1: Pop your peas in a pot of boiling water for about 4 minutes and add your pine nuts to a separate pan on medium heat.

Step 2: While they’re cooking, add all of the mint pesto ingredients to the food processor and blitz until you have a gorgeous fragrant sauce. Set it aside and toss the pine nuts.

Step 3: Roughly chop and crumble your feta. When the peas are ready, strain them and let them cool for a few minutes.

Step 4: Add the pine nuts and feta to the peas in a large bowl and toss everything in the pesto. Serve and enjoy!
