“What,” you may ask, “are boquerones?” The short answer is that they are white anchovies. But these mild Spanish fish are so different from the heavily brined version more familiar to Americans, that they deserve their own name. We use them here to flavor a lemony salad of Southern fall staples: field peas, snap beans and radishes.

Prepare your mise en place: Trim ends from snap beans, and cut beans into 1-inch pieces. Peel, halve and thinly slice shallot. Zest and juice lemon; measure out 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice (reserve remainder for another use). Halve and thinly slice radishes. Pick and chop parsley leaves. Roughly chop boquerones.

In a large mixing bowl combine shallot, lemon zest, 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Whisk well. Add greens, radish, parsley and boquerones.
