Arugula, Spring Peas, Asparagus and Feta in an Herbed Vinaigrette

Arugula, Spring Peas, Asparagus and Feta in an Herbed Vinaigrette

My spring greens are wildly growing out of the garden boxes and it’s only mid-April!  Every morning Tank and I walk outside to preview the spring greens that have popped up or grown an inch overnight.  We fight with nagging slugs that are taking pleasure in dining on my Pok Choy and then we snip greens for salad and sautéing.  Tank pretends to be interested in my garden boxes but I’m not fooled; he only accompanies me outside to...
