It's SPRING! And it's about that time of year when we await those seeded, green berries to transform into sweet, ruby jewels. When your berries are ripe and ready, try this garden to table recipe in the kitchen. We think you'll fall head over heels!
1 1/2 cups trimmed fresh sugar snap peas (about 5 oz.)
4 oz. garden-fresh baby arugula
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries from the garden
1 cup seeded and chopped English cucumber
3/4 cup fresh baby English peas
4 ounces Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
6 cooked bacon slices, coarsely chopped
Sweet Basil Vinaigrette
1. Arrange sugar snap peas in a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover and steam 1 to 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Plunge peas into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain. Cut peas diagonally in half.
