Sugar Snap Pea Salad with Lemon-Mint Vinaigrette
This recipe serves: 6  
1 1/2 pounds fresh sugar snap peas, trimmed
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly chopped mint
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions
1. Put about 2 inches of water in a large pot, insert a rack or steamer basket into the pot and bring the water to a boil. Steam the sugar snap peas in the basket for about 3 minutes, or until the peas turn bright green. Remove the basket and run under cold water to stop the cooking process.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the Dijon mustard, white wine vinegar and lemon juice together. Add the shallots and slowly whisk in the olive oil and mint. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
(The vinaigrette can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.)

3. Gently toss the sugar snap peas in the vinaigrette and serve at room temperature or chilled.

Serving Size: 3/4 cup of salad with vinaigrette
