Frozen peas are brilliant, I always have them in the freezer and chuck them in pasta, soups and salads all the time. Broad beans would be great in this too and adding some lovely feta or goat's cheese would be delicious. You can throw in whatever fresh herbs you fancy, they are dead easy to grow or really cheap to buy. Most of the herbs in my garden were all originally those little pot grown herbs from the supermarket that I've just cut then planted out.
- a handful of salad leaves
- 2 handfuls frozen peas
- 1 ripe pear, sliced
- half a red onion, finely sliced
- fresh herbs such as fennel fronds, basil, mint, chives, chopped and edible flowers to garnish.
Put your frozen peas in a jug and cover with boiling water, leave for about 30 seconds then rinse with cold water until the peas are cold again, drain and combine with the other ingredients. Drizzle with your favourite dressing and decorate with edible flowers if you fancy (I always do!).
