Pea, mint and salted ricotta salad

all details

This is for my wife, Georgia. We often go to a restaurant in Melbourne that serves a similar salad to this, and she loves it. I use salted ricotta but if you have trouble finding this, pecorino or parmigiano-reggiano can be used. I try to use fresh peas when they are in season but there are some good-quality frozen peas available that will work just as well.

Ingredients

  • 500g fresh peas, shelled
  • 1 small red onion, sliced finely
  • 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp white-wine vinegar or white balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 16 mint leaves
  • 10 green or purple basil leaves
  • 80g salted ricotta, grated roughly

Method

Blanch the peas in boiling salted water for a couple of minutes, then drain and refresh in iced water. Remove the cold peas from the water and place in a large bowl. Add the onion, olive oil and vinegar — you should just be able to taste the vinegar but it shouldn't be too strong. Season with salt and pepper. Toss through the mint, basil and ricotta and serve immediately.
