Pea shoots! Isn’t it just great to eat fresh local greens in the winter? The younger they are the more tender and delicious to eat raw. As soon I arrived home after this month’s pickup I made this simple dressing and ate half the bag without even bothering to sit down. The rest I used for breakfast omelets with blue cheese… not bad either!

  • 2 heaping tablespoons tahini
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • about a half or so teaspoon of molasses
  • salt
  • pepper
