This recipe is for those who like their salads with loads of personality and flavor. The bold chilli dressing stands up to the meaty chunks of lamb to make a salad that any meat lover would be impressed with. To blanch the peas and beans, bring a medium saucepan of heavily salted water to a boil. Add the beans and boil for 1-2 minutes. Immediately drain peas and shock under cold water or in an ice bath. Repeat with the peas, boiling for 30 seconds (for frozen) or 1-2 minutes (for fresh).
