This salad became an instant favorite almost exactly one year ago when my mom shared it with me. It’s AMAZING.

It has three different types of peas in it, topped over a bed of spring mix lettuce and arugula, with radishes and the most delicious creamy lemon dressing. I’ve served it many, many times as a main dish with a piece of salmon or grilled steak on top.

I’ve also served it often as a side dish (without the salmon or steak), and both ways are excellent. It always gets rave reviews–I think because it’s refreshingly different than traditional salads. And you just can’t ignore the amazing flavors in every single bite.
