Mâche, French for lamb’s lettuce, is a small, nutty green common in Europe. If you can’t find it at your local supermarket, use mixed baby lettuce instead.


  • 8 ounces sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive, walnut or almond oil
  • 2 tablespoons fruity vinegar, such as raspberry or pomegranate
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 cups packed mâche
  • 1/4 cup snipped fresh chives (1/2-inch pieces)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh tarragon


  1. Place a saucepan 3/4-full with water over high heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the peas and cook for 2 minutes, then drain, rinse under cold water and drain again.
  2. Put the sliced almonds into a small skillet and toast over medium-low heat for 3 minutes until golden and fragrant.
  3. Place the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper into a large salad bowl and whisk to combine. Add the lettuce, chives, tarragon and the snap peas, and toss to coat. Scatter in the toasted almond slices and serve.
