Fresh Pea, Herb and Cheese Salad **** 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 medium onion, chopped 2-3 garlic cloves, minced 4 cups water 2 cups freshly shelled peas (use frozen if you have to) 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup fresh cheese (I used this recipe for paneer) salt and pepper to taste freshly chopped basil and oregano (or whatever you like instead) splash of balsamic vinegar and oil (roughly 2 teaspoons each) In a large saucepan set over medium heat, heat the oil and sautee the onion and garlic until translucent. Set aside. Bring the water to a boil in large stock pot and cook the peas until tender (about 5 minutes). Drain them from the water, rinse under cold water and drain well. In a large bowl, combine the peas, onion, garlic, fresh cheese, salt, pepper and the herbs. Mix until combined and add a few splashes of vinegar and olive oil
