Snap Pea Salad with Radish and Lime
Sugar snap peas are sweet with a lovely crispiness. We think they are probably the best vegetable now commonly available. In this recipe they are combined with wax beans and radishes along with a light lime dressing that highlights the clean crisp and sweet flavors. A perfect side dish to boost the veggie intake in any meal.
