What to do with Sweet Peas

Recently this question was posed on the KWT CSA google group regarding the sweet pea shoots that were part of the pickup last Saturday. Some of the discussion answers:

Our neighbors put them in risotto along with the asparagus. I also came across this link [pea shoot ideas] : http://www.sunset.com/food-wine/fast-fresh/pea-shoots-00400000011362/

We're doing this [Pea Shoot Risotto]: http://www.peashoots.com/peashoots-risotto.htm

I thought of a recipe that sound delicious (though I haven't tried it yet): Its a salad using the pea shots, some of the strawberries (sliced) and some crumbled blue cheese. A bit of olive oil and lemon for dressing.

Thanks to Nicole, Catherine, Viril, and Jennah for their question/suggestions.
