This salad has the makings of a classic, it’s certainly become one in my house anyway! Peas and mint are like two peas in a pod (pun intended) and pair them with some crumbly feta and crunchy toasted pine nuts and you’ve got one hell of a salad. Delicious at any time of the day and just as yummy as leftovers or a packed lunch!

Pop your peas in a pot of boiling water for about 4 minutes and add your pine nuts to a seperate pan on medium heat.

While they’re cooking, add all of the mint pesto ingredients to the food processor and blitz until you have a gorgeous fragrant sauce. Set it aside and toss the pine nuts.

Roughly chop and crumble your feta. When the peas are ready, strain them and let them cool for a few minutes.

Add the pine nuts and feta to the peas in a large bowl and toss everything in the pesto.

Serve and enjoy!

    You are so right, the combination of peas and feta is wonderful! Then add in your mint peso and the pine nuts? Sounds wonderfully fresh and delicious! Thanks for sharing!

    I made this yesterday to bring to a BBQ and was delighted with the result. It was so refreshing, absolutely ideal for a summer picnic, garden party or BBQ. I steamed the peas instead of boiling and used broccoli too. Can’t wait to tuck into the leftovers for lunch at work tomorrow! Thanks Indie for yet another spot on recipe!
