Tuna, Radish, Green Pea, & Frisee Salad with Pistachio Vinaigrette

This lively combination of flavors and textures works extremely well as a salad that’s a little out of the ordinary. The pistachio vinaigrette sports a brilliant green color that works on just about any salad. Fresh sweet peas are best, but frozen and thawed peas work as well.
