Lemony Snap Pea + Zucchini Salad with Pistachios + Feta
This light and healthy recipe for Lemony Snap Pea + ZucchiniSalad with Pistachios + Feta is a great dish for the late spring and early summer.  It is quick and easy to make and full of flavor and contrasting textures, Sometimes I like to have this on its own, but I love how it is so easy to add a grain like farro to make it more substantial.  You can also top it will a nice piece of grilled salmon, chicken or chickpeas to make it a full meal.
