10 oz / 300g green beans
5 oz / 150g snow peas
4 oz / 120g feta
Fill a large pot with water and bring to boil.
Cut the woody ends off the asparagus, then cut the asparagus into 3. Separate the asparagus heads from the stems.
Trim the beans and place in a separate pile.
Remove the strings along each side of the snow peas.
Place the beans in the boiling water. When the water comes back to the simmer again, leave the beans to simmer for 30 seconds. (Note 1)
Add the asparagus stems in. Once it comes back up to a simmer, count 30 seconds again. Then add the snow peas and asparagus heads, bring it back up to a simmer and count to 30 seconds.
Immediately drain the greens and run cold water over the greens for 10 seconds to stop the cooking process.
Once cool, set aside to dry. Roughly dry with a paper towel if serving immediately.
Combine the Dressing ingredients in a jar and shake well to mix.
Place the greens in a bowl and toss with the Dressing.
Transfer to a serving bowl, crumble over feta and scatter with dried cranberries. Serve immediately.
1. When you first toss the vegetables into the boiling water, the water stops boiling/bubbling because the temperature drops. When the water comes back up to the boil / simmer (i.e. when the water is bubbling again), start timing.2. If making ahead, store the undressed greens in the fridge, covered, until required.3.
