The Anything Green Chopped Salad

Directions

  1. For salad: Blanch green beans, snap peas, and asparagus by cooking in a large pot of salted boiling water 2 minutes. Transfer to ice bath; let stand 1 minute. Pat dry. In a large bowl combine blanched vegetables, cucumber, and zucchini.
  2. For dressing: In a screw-top jar combine oil, lime zest and juice, cilantro, jalapeno, cumin, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the crushed red pepper. Cover; shake well. Pour dressing over salad; toss. Let stand 30 minutes. Top with pepitas and, if desired, feta cheese.
