Corn & Snap Pea Salad

Remember back in September when I couldn't find any snap peas to make a salad for my friend's birthday lunch? Well look at this! Snap peas from the farmer's market (well a few weeks ago). But still. Completely unexpected and pleasantly surprising as it allowed for my one and only purchase of snap peas for this season.

Grant, over at Well Fed, makes some serious good eats. Back in the middle of summer I saw his post on his Corn & Snap Pea Salad with Blue Cheese Vinaigrette. It looked so refreshing and vibrant that I knew I must try it out. Until I completely forgot about that is and let summer pass me by.

But these late late snap peas will redeem me sort of, won't it? I made a simpler version leaving out the blue cheese vinaigrette and with roasted corn and blanched snap peas. Add a sqeeze of lemon, drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle of parlsey and a few grinds of black pepper and this salad was dressed and ready to go.

I added a tiny bit of feta to the salad when it got promoted to my tv dinner plate.

I'm so glad you got to make this salad! It has such great crunch, doesn't it? I love the idea of roasting the corn and using feta. So clever, you.

thanks for inspiring this salad from me! i do love this crunchy fresh salad. i roasted the corn with all the husk off though --> i took the lazy road. :)
