Recipe: Peas salad with mint

Salads with aromatic herbs
August 29, 2013

SpearmintThis year I'm growing spearmint: it has the fresh aroma characteristic of all varieties of mint, delicate yet persistent, with no wild aftertaste.

I used spearmint and basil for this salad, that can be served as a sidedish but can be considered a full meal served with bread or breadsticks.

Peas salad with mint

1 cup peas
2 tbsp butter
1/2 clove garlic
50g diced fontina or cheddar

Melt the butter in a pan and season with crushed garlic. Cook the peas in butter for 10 minutes until tender, then discard the garlic.
Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Add the diced fontina cheese, chopped spearmint and basil.
