Pea, Radish & Mint Salad

let me start by saying the title of this post should have read...
 "even bloggers make mistakes"
well, in my eagerness to photograph this beautiful salad it didn't dawn on me till after i put my camera away and divided it among plates that i was missing the third ingredient in this dish,  the mint.  
i know, rookie mistake, and i call myself a blogger, however, i did rectify the situation before 4 little forks went after it.  that counts right?
now that we've addressed the issue of my imperfectionist ways, lets discuss how perfect this salad is for spring and the all important spring holiday, Easter.
peas are without question one of springs finest vegetable and as such i take full advantage of them.  tonight they became the star in this ridiculously simple salad.  a light dish with nice flavour, perfect for the eve before the chocolate hunt and big family gathering.

it looks like tomorrow's mini egg pancake breakfast will be done so guilt-free and with a clear conscious.
 happy easter weekend.  xo.
