Your salad sounds yum Lisa! It's funny, a customer asked me for fresh pea pods today and although we are a gourmet store, we don't have any as of yet.
The NY Greenmarket is at the end of my street by work on Tues, Thurs and Saturday and I'm still not seeing them. I love to buy bags of these and eat them raw. My girls love popping the pods, like I did when I was a youngster.
