  • 100g baby spinach
  • 100g baby rocket
  • 200g feta
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 level teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 level teaspoon pepper


Wash salad leaves and dry in a lettuce spinner or between sheets of paper towel and place in a large salad bowl.

Blanch the peas in boiling, unsalted water (fresh peas will take longer) for 1-2 minutes, refresh under cold water, drain and add to salad bowl.

Crumble feta into bowl. To make the dressing, combine lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper in a small glass jar.

Screw on lid and shake well to combine. Toss the dressing through the salad just before serving.



  • You will probably only need half of the dressing; try storing the rest in the jar in the fridge.
  • Try cooking frozen peas in a microwave steamer on high for 1 minute, stir and then for another minute. Refresh under cold water.
  • A great side for fish!
