Peashoot Salad

I have been on a bit of a peashoot kick lately.  They are a nice break from the usual greens and they have such a great rich and nutty flavour.  I usually just toss them in as an addition to a burger or stir fry, but I wanted to make them the highlight of a recipe.  I made a Peashoot Salad which was super delicious, fresh and healthy, yum!

I’m a big fan of multicoloured heirloom carrots, mainly because of how they look but also because they are so very delicious.

The dressing was so simple to make and will be making an appearance in my food more often

Not only does it taste fantastic, it also looks pretty which is an added bonus if you eat with your eyes like I do.
