Sugar snap peas are one of my favorite vegetables. Most of the time when I make sugar snap peas, I’ll saut√© them, but this week I decided to make them into more of a marinated salad to keep their crunch and freshness.

This recipe is really simple to make and full of flavor! I’d recommend using this dish as a side to a lunch or dinner. For example, you can pair it with this sriracha salmon recipe.

Sugar snap peas are particularly high in vitamin C as well as vitamins manganese, calcium, and potassium. A great addition to any meal.
