  • 14 ounces fresh sweet peas (400g)
  • ½ cup feta (crumbled) (100g)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves (finely chopped)
  • juice of half a lemon
  • ½ tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Bring a pot of water to the boil. Add the peas and cook for 2 to 3 minutes til tender but still firm.
  • Drain the peas and rinse under cold running water to coll them down and stop the cooking process.
  • Place the peas into a large bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Gently toss together to combine and season to taste.


  • Take care not to overcook the peas. They should still have a little bite to them so there's some texture to the salad.
  • Make sure the peas are cool before tossing them with the other ingredients. Run them under cold water to cool them down quickly.
  • Fresh mint has a very strong flavor, so don't go over board on it. You just need a little to get a nice flavor. You can add in a bit of time and taste and adjust to suit your taste.
  • Use fresh lemon juice rather than bottled for the zingiest flavor.
