Want an easy summer salad to take to your next get-together?
You are in luck!
This salad of fresh sugar-snap peas can be made in minutes!
Sugar-snap peas have a high content of dietary fiber, are an excellent source of folic acid, and have more vitamin K than shelled peas. Best of all, fresh pods have more than 150% of vitamin C than fresh garden peas and are rich in many minerals and nutrients.
So, here’s how to prep the salad!
Just get a pound of fresh sugar-snap peas and wash them in cold water and pat dry. Then trim the stem and remove the stringy fiber from each end. Place all cleaned snap-peas in a serving dish. You can sometimes find a nice big bag of sugar snap-peas in your grocery aisle….just check the date for freshness!
Next, wash some red grape tomatoes and some yellow cherry tomatoes. Pat dry and add to salad. If you have a small red onion, you can chop this and add to salad now. We omit this due to the fact that we cannot seem to digest raw red onions in our household!
Then add some herbs….We love basil and oregano. We used dry herbs in this salad because we didn’t plant ours yet! We also added some garlic powder (you can use some fresh minced garlic) and kosher salt and pepper.
Last for the dressing….We drizzled extra virgin olive oil on the salad and then squeezed one half of a fresh lemon. Toss it all together!
It’s so pretty and nutritious!
