Sugar Snap Pea Salad
We looked for ingredients to support, not sideline, this lovely springtime treat.
Why This Recipe Works
For a salad that showed off a variety of fresh, seasonal flavors to complement sugar snap peas, we added a few handfuls of peppery arugula, some thinly sliced spicy red radishes, and a healthy amount of cooling English cucumber. We tried the sugar snap peas both blanched and raw and found that raw peas gave the salad the best texture. For the prettiest presentation, we cut the pods in half diagonally. We dressed the components in an easy, creamy white wine vinaigrette bolstered with chopped dill and a bit of mustard for personality.
