The secret ingredient to exciting salads

Yesterday I was talking about how to avoid wasting fresh produce…

And I forgot to mention there is an upside to the whole short shelf life of veg thing.

I find it a brilliant source of inspiration.

If the truth be told some of my best kitchen creations have come from having to ‘use up’ whatever veg I have in the fridge.

Case in point my new crunchy take on a simple green salad.

And the secret ingredient?

Snow peas that I needed to use up before they went bad.

Now I’m finding myself buying snow peas all the time just to make this salad.

exciting green salad
serves 2 as a side

1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce (mangetout)
large handful snow peas
2 large handfuls washed salad leaves

1. Combine vinegar, soy sauce and 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil in a bowl. Taste and season if needed but the soy should be salty enough.

2. Trim snow peas and toss in the dressing along with the salad leaves.
