Sugar Snap Pea Salad with Lemon Mint Vinaigrette

Nina Marcinowski

If your sugar snap peas don't disappear as fast as they do at my house, this is a good simple recipe in which to use them. This recipe comes from the July/August 2008 issue of Vegetarian Times.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon honey
  • 1 lb trimmed sugar snap peas
  • ⅓ cup chopped nuts

Directions

Make the vinaigrette by whisking all the ingredients together. Cook peas in boiling water 2 minutes, till bright green, (don’t overcook). Drain, then toss peas with 3 T. of vinaigrette, stir in nuts.
