When I lived up north and had a big vegetable garden, it was a miracle if the snow peas made it into the house.
Same for the sugar snap peas. I’d stand out in the garden and eat them right off the vines.
Even snow peas from the store shine in this simple and easy salad.
Crisp and clean with just a bit of kick from our friends the radishes.
Here’s what you need:
Snow Peas, Radishes, Green Onion, Walnut Oil (or olive oil), White Wine Vinegar, Sugar, Salt & Pepper.
In a perfect world, we would take the time to trim and pull the sting off each and every snow pea.
If the peas weren’t super fresh and tender or if my mom was coming over for dinner, I certainly would take the time to remove the little string. However, I don’t have a problem with the little pea string so I just let that step slide.
Give one of your raw peas a quick bite and you’ll quickly discover if you need to take the string off the side or not.
Put 2 cups (8 ounces) of snap peas in a microwave safe dish with about 1 Tablespoon of water. Cover and microwave for only 1 minute.
