Pea and Mint Salad with feta

The other day I was in a small pub in Glasgow and they served this delicious salad with a caralamised onion tart, I requested for the recipe and the chef obliged. Last night I made it myself and it was delicious. Here it is try it!!  The chef had used roman pecorino ,I used feta cheese instead of the pecorino. If you can't find fresh peas, use frozen thawed green peas.

  • 2  cups  water
  • 1  cup  shelled green peas
  • 1/4  cup  chopped fresh mint
  • 1 1/2  tablespoons  fresh lemon juice
  • 1  tablespoon  extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2  cup  crumbled feta


Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add peas; cook 1 minute. Drain and plunge peas into ice water; drain.
Combine peas, and mint in a large bowl. Add lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper; toss well. Add the feta. Serve immediately.
