The farmers market starts getting good in late June in Minnesota. A sure sign that the season is really in full swing is strawberries and snap peas. Of course, I had to put them together in a salad! If you can get to the market early in the morning, make Strawberry Snap Pea Salad for lunch while the ingredients still have that “picked that same day” quality.
What makes a good salad? Indeed, having crunch, color, and a zingy dressing are steps in the right direction. Simple though this salad is, it has all of that going for it. I like to serve it over some delicate greens.
Don’t be tempted to blend the dressing. The chunks of lime add to the texture, and there’s just enough honey in the dressing to round out the flavor and take the edge off the sour citrus flavor.
