Cooking Light ~ All things GREEN

It is March ~ the month of all things Green.
For our Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club, we are keeping in the theme of  ' All Things Green '
I wanted something fresh and light ~ and GREEN. I found my recipe here on Cooking Light

Lemony Snap Peas
8 cups water
12 ounces sugar snap peas, trimmed
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 shallot, minced
 Bring 8 cups water to a boil in a large Dutch oven. Add peas; cook 30 seconds or until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge into ice water; drain. Slice half of peas diagonally.

Combine Lemon rind and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk.
Add peas and toss to coat.
This was a great light side dish. The secret is to keep the snap peas crunchy and add lots of lemony flavor.


Now . . . let's see what everyone else has brought for our GREEN feast.
Jerry has made Salmon with Cucumber Salad and Dill Sauce
Val is making an appetizer of a Creamy Feta Spinach Dip
 Susan is bringing a salad with New Hampshire Maple-Mustard Salad Dressing
Sara is bringing  Shrimp in Green Sauce
Roz  has a Caesar salad with Pesto Sauce

Y'all enjoy ~

Thank you Sandi for remembering us as you are enjoying the sunshine of Malta and cooking with Jamie Oliver. These peas personify what we are all waiting anxiously for here in the Northern Hemisphere.

Wow! I love that brilliant bright green of the peas! I can practically feel the c-r-u-n-c-h-! With the tart lemon? Heaven after all those winter root vegetables!
