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
1 cup sliced radishes
2 cups sugar snap peas, sliced
4 ounces ricotta cheese, crumbled
½ bunch mint leaves, torn (about 1/3 cup)
1 clove garlic, minced
Pinch kosher salt, more to taste
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2-3 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
- In a large bowl, toss together the radishes, peas, ricotta and mint.
- Using a knife or a mortar and pestle, make a paste of the garlic and salt. Place in a small bowl and add the lemon juice and balsamic vinegar and stir well to combine. Drizzle in the olive oil, stirring constantly, and add pepper to taste.
- Pour dressing over salad and toss well to combine. Taste and add more salt and pepper if necessary.
