  • In a medium saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the sugar snap peas until just tender, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sugar snaps to a colander and refresh under cold water; pat dry with paper towels and transfer to a large bowl. Repeat the process with the green beans, broccoli and beets, cooking each vegetable individually until just tender.

  • Add the greens, tomatoes and feta cheese to the bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad, toss well and serve.

Make Ahead

The recipe can be prepared through Step 2 up to 1 day ahead; refrigerate the vegetables and dressing separately and bring to room temperature before assembling the salad.
