This is an easy and delicious salad that goes together quickly. It is cool and refreshing especially if you’re experiencing a spike in the temperature as we did in these last few days.
Start with a few handfuls of sugar snap peas. Trim off the ends and cut them in half. Put them in a bowl.
Pour about 1 1/2 cups of frozen petite peas into a mesh strainer and defrost them under running water. Shake the water off them and dump them in the bowl with the sugar snap peas.
Dice up two stalks of celery and add that to the bowl.
Chop up some fresh mint – you’re aiming for about a 1/4 cup of chopped mint, and add that to the bowl.
Toss the salad together. Drizzle with the juice of 1/2 a lemon, a few tablespoons of olive oil, a teaspoon of sugar, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss again and serve or if made ahead, refrigerate and serve chilled.
Like I said, easy and delicious.
