Simply Snow Peas

  • 8 oz fresh snow peas, washed and trimmed
  • 3 T extra virgin olive oil
  • coarse sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • Julienne snow peas into long, thin strips
  • Place peas in a mixing bowl and add oil, salt and pepper to taste
  • Toss to combine and allow to set at room temperature for 30 minutes
  • Add to any dinner for a light, crispy, tasty side
  • Use very fresh snow peas. If they are limp, soak in ice water for an hour before cutting.
  • Substitute the olive oil with sesame oil or an infused oil that you like.
  • Sea salt is key; I like the crunch!
  • Allowing them to sit for the 30 minutes will allow them to turn bright green, almost like you cooked them perfectly; they make a beautiful plate.
  • Do not add the oil and salt to the peas too early, as they will continue wilting the longer they sit. 30-60 minutes is about right.
  • Try with other raw veggies like asparagus, green beans, and broccoli to make your own creations. 
  • Snow peas are so good raw and so easy to overcook, this is a great way to get that sweet taste without having to worry with cooking (which usually turns into ugly and mushy... boo!) 
  • Enjoy!
