Sugar Snap Peas all tossed up!

Last week we had dinner and I needed something quick, easy and nutritious to go along side of our yummy meatball subs.  Ten minutes before dinner, while perusing the new Everyday Food, I came across this great recipe.

With five pounds of snap peas in the fridge (thanks Sam's Club; only $5) I had everything on hand and this refreshing and delicious side came together in no time!

Here is the recipe...would be great with anything or mixed with quinoa or couscous for a more substantial dish.

Raw Snap Pea Salad (as adapted from Everyday Food)

1 pound trimmed sugar snap peas
1 C finely chopped red onion
3 T lemon juice
2 T olive oil
Salt and Pepper

In a large bowl, combine sugar snap peas, sliced into 1/4 inch pieces, red onion, lemon juice, olive oil and salt and pepper.  Let stand, tossing occasionally 10 minutes.  Enjoy!
