Green and Purple Fresh Pea Salad with Yuzu Dressing

Green and Purple Pea Salad with Yuzu Dressing | Black Girl Chef's Whites

 

This Green and Purple Fresh Pea Salad with Yuzu Dressing is an incredibly fresh, crunchy salad that is sweet, sour and oh so good.

I had never tried purple snow peas before I received a sample from Frieda’s Produce.  Although my eye registered that they were purple, the flavor was, well . . . green.   My 7 year old was tasting along with me, and when I said they tasted so green, she said “Green is not a taste mom! It’s a color!” This coming from a kid who eats blue things that taste like red things that taste like orange things. Please.

By using the word green I mean fresh, clean, vegetal. What a fresh pea should taste like. Regardless if it is purple or not.

This salad comes together in about 10 minutes, so it is an ideal quick and easy side dish.  Take this to a BBQ or potluck, and watch it disappear.

The yuzu no sui is a salted yuzu juice. If you would like to substitute the yuzu juice, I suggest lime juice. Be sure to season with salt if you substitute, as all the salt in this dish comes from the yuzu juice.
