Iley's Samurai Salad

Sweet garden peas, paired with sweet tangy peaches, and flavorful fresh garden herbs like basil, cilantro, chervil and fennel, along with fresh crisp garden butter lettuces is a delightful taste of summer. This peach-fennel vinaigrette hits all the right notes- sweet, tangy, herbilicious, etc.
