With a faint pea flavor, pea shoots are lovely in salads, stir-fries, pizzas, and soups. Look for them at farm stands or Asian markets in spring, and get them while you can–their flavor turns bitter at the end of the growing season.

How to Make It

Combine cider vinegar, 1/2 cup water, and teaspoon sugar, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add onion; let stand 30 minutes. Drain. Cook English peas in boiling water with 1 teaspoon salt for 2 minutes. Drain; rinse peas with cold water. Combine onion, peas, pea shoots, and sliced radishes in a large bowl. Combine olive oil, white wine vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Drizzle oil mixture over pea mixture; toss gently.
