Adding tomatoes, fresh herbs, and pea shoots to a simple bowl of tossed greens boosts its nutrient content. Dressing it with monounsaturated-rich olive oil supplies even more. Pea shoots are the small leaves and tendrils from pea plants, most often snow peas. They're a good source of vitamin A. Substitute mâche if your local market doesn't stock pea shoots. To save time, use 1/3 cup chopped herb salad mix in place of the chive, thyme, and tarragon; look for it near the other packages of fresh herbs.
