Sweet Pea Tendril Salad

Sweet Pea Tendril Salad


2 C. tender sweet pea tendrils or a mixture of lettuces and pea tendrils

A handful of fresh cherry tomatoes, I used tiny sweet orange tomatoes

Salt and pepper, to taste


2-3 ears of fresh sweet corn cut from the cob

1 T. unsalted butter

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/2 tsp. curry powder (optional)

freshly ground black pepper


Remove the husks and the silk from the corn and cut the kernels off as close to the cob as possible without cutting into the cob. Melt the butter in a large, heavy sauté pan. Add the corn, salt, pepper and curry powder, if using. Sauté uncovered on medium-low heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the corn is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper.


Meanwhile grill shrimp.


Lemon Vinaigrette


1/4 C. extra virgin olive oil

2 T. fresh lemon juice

3/4 tsp. minced fresh garlic

3/4 tsp. kosher salt

freshly cracked black pepper

Gently stir the ingredients together, do not emulsify.


Place pea tendrils in a serving bowl or divide onto individual plates. Add the tomatoes and sautéed corn and grilled shrimp and drizzle the lemon vinaigrette over the salad.
