Courtesy of the National Gourmet Institute via GrowNYC Union Square Greenmarket, this refreshing, sprightly salad screams "make me now!" as over half of its ingredients are in their seasonal prime come late June.
The two main ingredients, sugar snap peas and strawberries, play off of each other brilliantly: the earthy, peppery peas are the perfect contrast to the confectionery sweet field strawberries. Tossed gently in a creamy, yogurt dressing dotted with garlicky scapes, refreshing balsamic and basil, and cooling olive oil, the same is simple—but with such fresh, quality ingredients, it's also simply outstanding. —KvellintheKitchen
