(Seriously. My phone and instagram are full of snapshots of the inside of my refrigerator on grocery day.)
It's a surprising, but delicious combination that is incredibly easy to put together. The peas are blanched slightly (either fresh or frozen will work!), then tossed with strawberries and crumbled feta. The dressing, made with lime juice, fresh mint, and a little honey--is the perfect companion to this dish, which happily straddles the place between salad and side.
While I kept it as-is, if you'd like to bulk the salad out a bit, handfuls of fresh spinach or peppery arugula would be a nice addition.
