Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Blanch snap peas until bright green and crisp-tender, about 1 minute. Immediately transfer with a slotted spoon to ice-water bath to stop the cooking. Drain.
Transfer to a serving bowl. Add pea shoots, snap peas, lettuce, and radishes; set aside.
Prepare Warm Dressing
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Arrange pancetta in skillet in a single layer; cook, turning once, until crisp, about 12 minutes. Transfer with tongs to paper towels to drain.
Pour off all but 2 tablespoons fat (if skillet seems dry, add enough oil to total 2 tablespoons fat). Add onions; cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until tender, about 4 minutes. Add wine; cook until most of liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add cream, and cayenne, if desired. Cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 4 minutes.
Pour warm cream dressing over greens; toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper, and top with reserved pancetta.
In a medium saucepan, cover the grain of choice with 2 inches of water. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer over moderately low heat until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain and let cool for about 10 minutes.
Finely grate 1 tsp. zest from 1 orange; set aside. Using a sharp knife cut all peel and white pith from all 2 oranges. Cut between membranes to release segments into a medium bowl; discard membranes.
In a bowl whisk together zest, lemon juice, vinegar, garlic, oil, salt and fennel fronds.
Toss the grains, citrus, fennel and nuts (if using). Add vinaigrette and toss again.

We saved green beans for day 30 of #vegout2021 With dozens of cultivars, from broad, meaty Roma to thin, delicate French filet beans, pods can be round or flat, and come in multiple colors: green, purple, yellow, or mottled, so they don't have to be a predictable choice.
