I’m so excited to launch letter P week! There are so many amazing foods that start with the letter P, from pancakes to poppy seeds, to pumpkin… it’s a pretty long list.
I’ll never forget my neighbors 2 year old getting frozen peas for himself right out of the freezer and eating them that way! My own 2 year old nephew calls them grapes! Some kids, just like peas. Mine, not so much. Preparing them in this tangy salad however is a way I’ve been able to change their minds. This recipe is very forgiving and you can add a myriad of different veggies

Interesting new research has shown that green peas are actually a good source of Omega 3 Fat! In 1 cup of green peas, there are 20 mg of ALA. Technically a legume, you can also find beta carotene and vitamin E in peas. Very cool!
