Snow Pea Salad with Hot Chilli Dressing

Tonight we are off to a friends house, people we haven't seen for a few months. Where does the time go?? Anyway, they asked if we could bring a salad. This recipe is one I've done tons of times, and always goes down a hit. Plus, it's healthy, yay!

Snow Pea Salad with Hot Chilli Dressing

  • 200g snow peas
  • 125g button mushrooms
  • 1 red capsicum
  • 4 shallots
  • 2 cups snow pea shoots
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp raw sugar
  • 1 tbsp sherry
  • 1/4 cup water

Trim snow peas and cut into bite size pieces. Slice mushrooms, capsicum and shallots and place in a large salad bowl with snow peas and pea shoots.

Dressing: heat oil in a saucepan. Add chilli, garlic and seeds, and fry until golden brown, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add all remaining ingredients, and mix well.

Immediately spoon dressing over the salad ingredients, toss, and serve.
