I went to the farmers market this weekend and found some pea shoots and English peas!  I was so excited because we already had received some asparagus in our weekly Farm Fresh to You CSA box along with some juicy lemons!  I couldn’t wait to run home to make this salad asap!  Hope you’re able to get farmers market ingredients and make this salad this spring!
