Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

6 oz
dark balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp
honey (good quality!)
1 1/4 c
pea shoots (tendrils)
1 c
mild spring greens: baby spinach, oak leaf/butter lettuce, escarole or similar
1/2 small
cucumber
1/2 c
fresh strawberries
salt and fresh cracked black pepper, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pour the balsamic vinegar and honey into a small saucepan. Place over a low heat and reduce until ½ its original volume. Allow to cool for 15 minutes. The mixture will thicken as it cools.
2
Peel and thinly slice the cucumber. Hull the strawberries and slice thinly.
3
Place the pea shoots and spring greens in a salad bowl with the cucumber and strawberries; lightly season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with the balsamic reduction just before serving. Don't drench the vegetables and fruit with the dressing!
4
We served the salad with slices of grilled ciabatta slathered with chevre.
