Sugar Snap Peas with Mint are a wonderful use for spring garden vegetables. This side dish is simple and quick to prepare and adds freshness to your menu.
2 pounds sugar snap peas, tough strings removed

How to Make It
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Add peas to boiling water; bring back to a boil. Continue boiling until peas turn bright green, about 30 seconds. Drain and immediately plunge into ice water. Let stand to thoroughly chill, about 5 minutes. Drain and spread peas out on paper towels to dry.
Just before serving, warm oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add peas, mint, pepper and 1 tsp. salt. Cook, stirring often, until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Serve warm.
