3 Tasty Types of Fresh Peas
Flattish, with tiny peas inside, these crisp, edible pods taste great thinly sliced and tossed with radishes, olive oil, and lemon juice in a crunchy salad, or with chicken and peanuts in fried rice.
Sugary and plump, snap peas are delicious eaten out of hand (shell and all) or sliced in half and tossed in pasta with butter and crabmeat.
Use these tender, mild stems as a base for a salad with asparagus. Or lightly sauté them and serve over farro mixed with goat cheese and almonds.
