From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...While I love a good salad, I must admit I have a problem with familiarity. This salad, developed by Martha Stewart, immediately caught my eye because of the ingredients used to make it. I had never seen snow peas used in this way and because the recipe was so easy to prepare, I made it the same day I found it. I have prepared it several times since then. I love the crunch of this salad and the play of tarragon and shallots against the crisp fresh peas is a real taste treat. I suggest you stack the peas and use scissors to cut them into thin strips. Once the peas are sliced, assembly of this salad is a breeze. I like to chill it for several hours before serving. The salad is not a great keeper because the dressing it is tossed with, gains strength and will overpower the lovely flavor of the snow peas within 24 hours. If you are looking for a different type of salad, you might want to give this one a try. Here is how it is made.
