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.

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
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!
