Finally, wash, dry, and cut the cherry tomatoes into wedges, rinse the soybean sprouts and set aside.
Boil the peas for 5 minutes in boiling water. In the meantime, prepare the dressing for the rice salad: squeeze the juice of half a lemon, pour it into a small bowl, season with salt and black pepper to taste, and add the olive oil gradually, quickly whisking with a flat spring whisk or a fork.
