Spring Vegetable Salad with Mint Pesto
Temps de préparation: 4 heures 50 minutes
Temps de cuisson: 3 heures 29 minutes
Type de plat: Salad, Side Dish
Cuisine: French, Italian


  • ¼ cup whole almonds with skins
  • 6 ounces green beans - ends trimmed
  • 6 ounces sugar snap peas - halved on the diagonal
  • 1 ½ cups fresh or frozen peas
  • 4 radishes - thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon ground black pepper
  • cup mint pesto
  • ½ cup fresh mint leaves
  • 2 ounces 1/2 cup crumbled feta, or to taste


  • You’ll need a soup or stock pot that will hold 8 cups, 2 sheet pans, and a blender (immersion or standing).


  • Toast the almonds:
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the almonds on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until they are fragrant. Let cool and coarsely chop or crush them.
  • Blanch the beans, snap peas, and peas:
  • Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Prepare a bowl of ice water. Add the beans to the boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add the sugar snap peas, and peas, let cook for 2 minutes, or until crisp-tender. (Total cooking time is 5 minutes.)
  • With a slotted spoon, transfer the vegetables to the bowl of ice water. Swish them around for about 1 minute. Drain them in a colander, and spread them on a paper towel-lined baking sheet. Pat dry.
  • Dress and serve the salad:
  • In a large bowl, toss the beans, snap peas, peas, and radishes with the oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Add the mint pesto and toss again.
  • Taste and add more salt, pepper, or vinegar, if you like. Transfer to a bowl or platter. Sprinkle with the almonds, feta, and mint leaves.
