How to Make Pea Shoots & Strawberry Salad w/Balsamic Reduction


  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.
