This is one of the newer salads on our menu and was inspired by Paul’s recent trip to California. He discovered a chain of salad restaurants around LA called Lemonade, which he thinks are the best salad places he’s ever been to – cheap, fresh and delicious. Just like this salad really.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g sugar-snap peas, trimmed and cut in half diagonally
200g snow peas, trimmed and cut in half diagonally
150g green beans, trimmed and cut in half diagonally
500g podded edamame
150g fresh mung beans
3 shallots, finely sliced
1 handful snow pea tendrils
1 bunch coriander, leaves picked and finely chopped
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds

Sesame dressing

Quantity Ingredient
125ml rice vinegar
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
125ml soy sauce
125ml vegetable oil
2 tablespoons sesame oil

Method

  1. To make the dressing, place all of the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. Prepare an ice bath by filling a large bowl with water and adding ice cubes.
  3. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil and add the peas, green beans and edamame. Cook for 2 minutes then drain and refresh in the ice bath. Transfer to a salad bowl.
  4. To assemble the salad, place the all the remaining ingredients into the salad bowl with the blanched peas and beans, drizzle the dressing over and toss well to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
