pea salad

This salad should be called the green magical goddess! It is so gorgeous on a big platter and filled with lots of lots of green magic…

Peas, edamame..avocado…all green, all good for you and all delicious!

I don’t just love the flavors in this salad, I love the textures in this salad. The soft pillowy butter lettuce is perfect against the firm bite of the edamame and the avocado and dressing adds a rich creaminess.
