Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 pound sugar snap peas, strings removed

Preparation

  1. 1. In a medium saucepan of boiling water, blanch the mint just until limp and bright green, about 30 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the mint to a blender and pulse until finely chopped. With the machine on, add the oil in a thin stream and blend until pureed. Transfer to a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  2. 2. Add salt to the boiling water, then blanch the sugar snap peas until just tender and bright green, about 3 minutes. Drain well, transfer to a bowl and toss with about 1 tablespoon of the mint oil. Serve with lemon wedges.
