serves 12

750 grams snow peas
200 grams bacon, cut in small strips
100 grams walnuts
a handful of fresh parsley
2 tablespoons walnut oil
2 tablespoons basil olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper

Cook the snow peas until tender but still crunchy, preferably in a steam basket to retain the nutrients and color. Cook the bacon strips in a large skillet for about ten minutes, until they've released some of their fat and they start to turn golden and crispy. Remove them from the skillet with a slotted spoon. Chop the walnuts, not too finely. Wash and dry the parsley, pick the leaves and chop them. In a salad bowl, mix together the vinegar, the basil olive oil and the walnut oil. Notice that you're running out of both oils. Experience a slight panic at the thought. Caress the cheering idea of getting hazelnut oil instead. Add the snow peas, walnuts, bacon and fresh herbs in the bowl, and toss to coat and even out the goodies.
