Mangetout (manj-too) is a French salad made with young garden peas. The easiest way to make this salad when you don’t have access to garden peas is to use tender snow peas or snap peas. It’s a refreshing salad and makes a great accompaniment to any meal. You can use prunes in two ways: drizzle a little Fresh Plum Concentrate into the vinaigrette for tangy sweetness and/or mix in Prune Bits or prunes. 235 kcal (983 kJ); protein 3.2 g; fat 14.2 g; carbohydrates 23.0 g
Yield: 4 servings
350 g / 12 oz snow peas or snap peas
90 ml / 6 tablespoons lime juice
8 g / 1 teaspoon Fresh Plum Concentrate or honey
1 teaspoon kosher salt
pinch of cayenne
90 ml / 6 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
100 g / 1/2 cup Prune Bits or whole or halved pitted prunes
1 cucumber, thinly sliced crosswise
10 g / 1 tablespoon toasted white sesame seeds
1 handful chopped cilantro
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and have ice water ready. Cook the snowpeas briefly until crisp-tender, about 1 minute, then plunge into the ice water. Drain.
In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, Fresh Plum Concentrate, salt, cayenne, and sesame oil in a salad bowl.
In a larger bowl, mix prunes, cucumber, and snow peas with the salad dressing. Let stand for 10 minutes. To serve, divid the salad into portions and scatter the sesame seeds and cilantro on top.
