For Winter Share alums, the fresh pea shoots we get are pretty much a hands down favorite. For newbies, they can be a bit of a mystery. To help those unfamiliar dive, Melanie sent along her tips for these delicious greens…

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

mix with a fork. toss in pea shoots. eat with chopsticks!
