Pea shoot salad

By Penny Stine

I decided the pea shoots in the living room were large enough to try to star in a salad. I found a recipe that just used pea shoots and shaved parmesan cheese in a lemon vinaigrette and decided to give it a whirl.

 


 

I meant to take a photo of the salad in the salad bowl, but forgot. So here it is on my plate.
The good news is that it was good - what there was of it. My husband also thought it was tasty, but he agreed that he could have easily consumed more. When pea shoots are the only real ingredient in a salad, you need a lot of them. I probably had a scant three cups before adding the dressing, which reduced it to less than two cups of salad.
The good news is that I finally confessed to my husband that I was growing a little garden in the living room on my plant shelf. Not that I was hiding it - the planters are out in plain site and all, but he never noticed them. Since he thought the pea shoot salad was fab, he didn't seem to care.
So of course, I planted more the next day...
