Pea Salad

To preserve snap and color in your peas, take the extra step of prepping an ice bath. Whether you’re boiling fresh peas or steaming frozen ones, dump the hot peas into the ice bath as soon as they’re finished cooking. This will also help chill them to minimize the time between cooking and eating as this salad is best cold.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • ½ Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 8 mint leaves, minced
  • ½ shallot, minced
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. young sugar snap peas or snow peas, trimmed and cooked

Directions

  1. Whisk together all ingredients except for snap peas.
  2. Toss snap peas with dressing and chill. Serve cold.
