Wainer Family Farm Pea Green Salad

 

Pea Greens are finally ready for harvest at the Wainer Family Farm™! These young and tender pea vines have a mild sweetness similar to snap peas and are rich in nutrients. You can easily swap these in for any other leafy green in salads, like we've done in this recipe, or cook them down as you would baby spinach. While these have been most often used in Asian cuisine, their delicate, spring flavor is incredibly versatile.
