Mint adds a fresh finish to this side dish, but fresh chopped thyme or oregano leaves will also pair well with the snap peas.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 teaspoons oil; swirl to coat.

Step 2

Add half of snap peas, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper to pan; sauté 1 1/2 minutes, stirring and tossing constantly. 

Step 3

Add half of onions to pan; sauté 1 more minute or until peas are crisp-tender. Toss in 1/4 teaspoon rind, and remove from pan. Repeat procedure with remaining oil, peas, salt, pepper, onions, and rind. Garnish with mint.

Easy tasty side

This was a great side.  Used thyme as I didn't have mint and it was a nice herbal kick.  Loved the chile.  This is a great side for an otherwise mild entree (like simple grilled chicken or fish).

Great and easy!

I'm always looking for a great, quick and easy side dish and this one doesn't disappoint.  Will definitely make again.
