Ingredients

1/2 cup shelled green peas
6 cups gourmet salad greens (about 1/4 pound)
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
4 turkey bacon slices, diced
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Coarsely ground pepper (optional)

Preparation

Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a saucepan; add peas. Cover and cook 7 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and rinse under cold running water; drain well.

Combine the peas, salad greens, and green onions in a bowl; set aside.

Cook the bacon in a nonstick skillet over medium heat 4 minutes or until crisp. Add 1/4 cup water, vinegar, and lemon juice; cook 2 minutes. Immediately pour over salad, and toss gently to coat. Sprinkle each serving with pepper, if desired.
