This Thai-inspired Snow Pea Carrot Salad with Mint Green Tea Vinaigrette is easy as 1, 2, 3—and it’s oh-so-special thanks to this flavorful vinaigrette, which calls upon the astringency of green tea and freshness of mint.



Mint Green Tea Vinaigrette:


  • 4 cups chopped greens (i.e., kale, collard, spinach, arugula)
  • 2 medium (about 3.5 ounces each) carrots, shredded
  • 8 ounces fresh snow peas, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup peanuts


  1. To make vinaigrette: Steep teabags in hot water in a small dish for about 1 hour. Squeeze tea out of tea bags. Whisk in sesame seed oil, agave syrup ginger, crushed red pepper, and a pinch of salt (optional). Drizzle with red hot chili oil, if desired.
  2. To make salad: Toss together greens, shredded carrots and snow peas in a large salad bowl. Toss in vinaigrette. Sprinkle with peanuts. Serve immediately.
  3. Makes 8 servings (about 1 1/4 cups each).
