Pea Shoots

Have you seen pea shoots in your market yet?

They are most often used in Chinese cooking, but I have found them to be a flavorful addition to salads. They have a long, graceful appearance. Perfect for topping with salad ingredients. You can also easily grow your own pea shoots with these handy tips.

Fresh Corn

If you love corn, it is at its peak during the summer. I love raw corn kernels in salads. They add a burst of sweetness to the salad.
