This salad is a great way to highlight turnips and snow peas. I’m always over the moon when we’re having an abundant year for peas, but I must admit that harvesting peas (of any kind!) is one of my least favorite farm chores. The rows are endless, it’s usually hot as hell, the buckets fill up quickly, and before you know it, you need to turn around and bushwhack your way back to the beginning of the row (where the truck waits), and then unload and head back to where you left off. With that being said, I love the flavor of peas, and snow peas are one of my favorite types. They pair well with sweet salad turnips and this tangy miso sauce. After just one bite, all is forgiven, and I’m quickly reminded that the flavors of the season always make the hard work worth it.
