    I may be the only person on the planet who has never had pea shoots. I love salads and think maybe the pea shoots will be a perfect addition.

    Valentina – your timing is perfect! Last week, I bought a bag of pea shoots (more like pea sprouts) at the market. I used a few for garnishing some salmon, but have a bunch leftover. This is perfect, and I love the sound of the pecan dressing – I can see numerous uses for that!!

    Hi Valentina! Oh I love pea shoots, at the market now! I made a Farmer’s Market Tartine with them, but this salad looks delicious. Best ~ Bijouxs
