A vibrant pea salad featuring a tangy vinaigrette, fresh mint and shallot. Piled atop a bed of silky smooth whipped goat cheese, this is one stunning side dish!


  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil + more for serving
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon honey 
  • 68 ounces sugar snap peas, thinly sliced
  • 68 ounces snow peas, strings removed and thinly sliced 
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed 
  • ½ cup thinly sliced shallot
  • ⅓ cup fresh mint, roughly chopped
  • 1 lemon, zested


In a medium bowl, vigorously whisk together goat cheese, buttermilk, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper until light and airy (this will take some muscle!). 

In a large bowl whisk together oil, vinegar and Dijon; season with salt and pepper. Add snap peas, snow peas, thawed green peas, shallot, and mint; toss to combine.

Spread goat cheese mixture over a large plate or platter. Pile pea mixture over top and finish with a few turns of cracked pepper, minced fresh lemon zest and a drizzle of olive oil.


Snow and Snap Peas: I offer a range in weight because the size of bags that snow and snap peas come in can range from 6 to 8 ounces. Either size works for both types of peas. If you can't find snow peas substitute with snap peas, and vice versa.
