We can buy fresh green peas, such as garden (English, shell) peas, snow peas and sugar snap peas all year round, but in the spring and summer they are at their snappiest best. Not everyone likes peas, we’ve heard. Say what?

They are sweet, full of fiber and nutrition, and currently one of the best supermarket nutrient- dense values to get more vegetables in your diet — and may deserve your attention. This simple, healthy pea salad can surely be adapted to your tastes, but serve it within 24 hours. The rich and delicious Italian-leaning side dish, inspired by “The New Basics” cookbook, is perfect with summer grilling or even for the holidays.
