This was great for fresh peas from my CSA. I used basil instead of mint because I don't care for fresh mint. Very nice flavor. My husband, who claims he hates peas, even liked it. I made it earlier this summer and I just got another bag of peas so I am pulling it up again.

My husband & I thought this recipe was excellent--a fabulous mix of flavors! I certainly plan to make it again and will be serving it to company, too. The only things I did different were that I boiled the peas in chicken broth instead of water for some extra flavor and, although it doesn't say to, I whisked the lemon juice, olive oil, s & p together to emulsify it. I think it made a big difference and coated the salad better. A great use for fresh peas from the Farmer's Market!

This recipe is wonderful! I have made it a dozen times to take to parties where I've watched every last pea get devoured at the bottom of the bowl. It's lite and one of those recipes where the sum is more than the parts. I get requests for it every time and many repeat performances. It's a good one!

This was very easy to make & a big hit at the picnic. Everyone raved about it. Great summer salad. I didn't cook the peas. I just thawed the frozen petite peas & it worked out very well. Will be making this for more cook outs.

This salad is fabulous. It's delicious enough for company, but easy enough to make any day of the week. A keeper!

This is fantastic. I use frozen peas that I just thaw with hot running water. I've also subbed watercress and sorrel - each also fantastic. This is a summer keeper.
