Sugar Snap Pea Spring Salad

A spring salad packed with protein, vegetables, freshly grated aged cheddar cheese and drizzled with olive oil. Perfect as a light dinner.

Sugar Snap Pea Spring Salad | Recipe from Sweet-Remedy.com

This is the kind of salad that deserves to be paired with an ice-cold beer and eaten on a spring evening on your back deck, with crickets and fireflies in the background.

It has it all, bacon (protein), hardboiled eggs (more protein), spring produce (good carbs/vegetables) and if it is drizzled with some really good olive oil, you have your good fat.

It has to be a really good cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. I try to choose olive oil that is Non-GMO Project Certified. Did you know that most olive oils on our supermarket shelves aren’t that great for us? I hate the way our food system attempts to dupe consumers. It really makes me angry when I fall victim to the “All Natural” claims that are just completely fake.

I honestly thought I was buying radishes for this salad but I came home with golden beets. What? Where was I? I was walking around the store with my head in the clouds, that’s where. Imagine my surprise when I came home and unpacked my bags and produce and noticed that those were indeed golden beets and not red radishes. What’s my problem?

I decided to use the beets in this salad and make beet chips. The chips didn’t really turn out because I forgot to set a timer and left them in until I smelled that all too familiar burning smell. At least I still was able to scarf down this salad and share it all with you today.

    We don’t have a back deck 🙁
    But I know this will taste just as good in our sun room (aka greenhouse 😉 )
    No fireflies either but plenty of other bugs 😉
    Thanks for this GORGEOUS salad recipe!! Can’t wait to try it 🙂

    Hey, I happen to have an ice cold beer. That justifies a trip to the grocery store so I can buy everything I need to make that gorgeous salad, right?
