emony Snap Pea & Zucchini Salad with Pistachios & Feta

I know it is officially fall, but we still have some veggies from the summer that we can enjoy for a little longer. As much as I LOVE fall, I like to hang on to the end of summer as long as possible. This is a very easy recipe that you can have on its own, or as a side dish. You can easily add a grain like farro to make it more substantial, or top it will a nice piece of grilled salmon or chicken.
