At Empowered Wellness Camps, we love to try new salads and new recipes.  We LOVE when our foods love us back.

For those who are looking for a salad that is NOT lettuce/kale/spinach based- here’s a yummy option! 

Sugar Snap Pea Salad

2 cups sugar snap peas, sliced  

4 ounces ricotta cheese, crumbled

2-3 teaspoons balsamic vinegar 

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 

Freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. In a large bowl, toss together the radishes, peas, ricotta and mint.
