Green Salad with Asparagus & Peas

From: EatingWell

Here's a salad where we've combined two stars of the spring garden, asparagus and peas. Since the asparagus goes into the mix raw, you'll want to look for the freshest, most tender spears you can find and slice them into very thin rounds.

Servings: 8 servings, about 2 cups each
Prep: 35 mins

1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
2 heads  Boston or Bibb lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
2 cups  very thinly sliced fresh asparagus, (about 1 bunch)
2 cups  shelled fresh peas, (about 3 pounds unshelled)
1 pint  grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons  minced fresh chives, or scallion greens
1. Combine lemon zest and juice, oil, sugar, salt and pepper in a large salad bowl. Add lettuce, asparagus, peas, tomatoes and chives (or scallion greens); toss to coat.
