That's how these cute little greens came along with me from one of my weekend explore. May be it is a common green to most of you, but for me this is the first time I am seeing it. At first I was a bit hesitant to get this. I did not know how it would taste, what else to do with this (because my family is not so keen in salads) and it was a bit expensive. Despite everything, I went ahead and bought it. I am so relieved that my gut saved me. I fell in love with those fresh and bright greens. It tastes more like peas and it imparts a very mild and subtle flavour in your bite. One of my top reasons to like this is that it can be incorporated in any Indian dish. Just like adding kasuri methi to the curries, this will also enhance the flavour. This is sure to frequent my table often. We had this salad with some pita breads and rotis and the next day I even had this as a side with my rice.
This is off to the third day of the blogging marathon 38, week 3 under the theme "Salads & Soups". Check out the recipes of other blog marathon runners over here.

I have never used pea shoots and I think I might have seen in the local grocery store too. Will definitely buy them next time I see them, at least I know what to make with them 🙂
Salad looks awesome and the dressing sounds yummy!!
