After a long winter of root veggies and kale, I’m always giddy at the sight of the first pea shoots, spring onions, peas and carrots.Miso Glazed Carrots | TENDING the TABLE

Miso Glazed Carrots | TENDING the TABLEThis salad was inspired by a simple vegetable side that is part of our regular rotation year round. I added crunchy snap peas and tender greens to brighten it up and a generous amount of toasted nuts and seeds for substance. I hope you like it as much as I do and  I’d love to hear about your favorite summer vegetable dishes.Miso Glazed Carrots | TENDING the TABLEMiso Glazed Carrots | TENDING the TABLEHave a beautiful week!
