Pea, feta and mint salad

Pea, feta and mint salad

Sugar snap and snow peas are now in season in Ontario and fresh green peas will be coming soon!  These little green gems are delicious on their own or mix them all together in this fresh, nutritious salad. To go with the green vegetable theme, you could also add some edamame beans for some extra protein and fibre.
