Pairing mint and peas signals that spring's in full swing. Use fresh mint, but skip the work of shelling peas: You'll get good results with frozen ones swapped in for fresh.


  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 head Bibb lettuce (about 9 ounces), washed well and torn into bite-size pieces

  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed

  • ½ cup fresh mint leaves, torn into bite-size pieces


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together lemon juice and mustard. Whisk in oil; season with salt and pepper. Add lettuce, peas, and mint; toss to coat.
