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!
