The best thing about spring is that I get to make this salad. I adore it. Fresh peas are absolutely amazing, and this salad has lots of them. Freshly shelled and left raw, they are sweet and crunchy and perfect with the spinach, feta, and lemony dressing.
The recipe comes from Jamie Oliver’s Naked Chef cookbook. Like most Jamie Oliver recipes, it’s pretty relaxed and not very precise. Just toss a few handfuls of baby spinach with a handful of fresh shelling peas and crumble some fresh feta over it. To dress, mix one part lemon juice with two parts olive oil, add a sprinkle of salt, and some freshly cracked pepper and whisk together. Toss the dressing over the salad and you are good to go.
