Pea, Crab and Orzo Salad

This salad was glorious, a little summer sunshine on a rainy wintery day. It was lovely and light and fresh and definitely one I'll be making again.

Pea, Crab and Orzo Salad (adapted from Martha Stewart)
(Serves 2)

50g mange tout     
50g sugar snap peas     
50g garden peas
50g pea shoots     
2 tbsp rice vinegar
4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
salt and pepper     
1 tin jumbo lump crabmeat
Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the orzo and cook according to packet instructions. Add the sugar snap peas, mange tout and garden peas for the last 2-3 mins of cooking. Drain and rinse under the cold tap.
Whisk together the vinegar and olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Put the pea shoots in a dish or lunchbox and top with the orzo and peas, followed by the crab. Drizzle the dressing over the salad toss to combine and serve.
