Asian Three-Pea Salad

Asian Three-Pea Salad

I absolutely LOVE peas!  This cold Asian pea salad is a great healthy salad bursting with flavor and perfect as a side dish.  I love that it is cold and there are so many different textures in it.  The dressing is sweet with a sesame taste that pairs perfect with the different peas.  I added alfalfa sprouts because I couldn’t find bean sprouts but I think the bean sprouts would have been a better option.  If you do use alfalfa sprouts, I would recommend adding them to the salad only when you are going to eat the salad so that they don’t get soggy.  Also, I used all frozen peas just because there were no fresh peas available here in Pittsburgh but fresh would probably be better.  You can add some grilled shrimp to make it a meal.
