How to Make Pea Shoots & Strawberry Salad w/Balsamic Reduction
- 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.
- Peel and thinly slice the cucumber. Hull the strawberries and slice thinly.
- 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!
- We served the salad with slices of grilled ciabatta slathered with chevre.
