When I got home last night, my neighbor had left 2 lbs of snow peas for our family! Although, I may be sharing snow pea recipes all week, I wanted to start with a delicious way to eat them: Warm Green Pepper Snow Pea Salad!
First off, a little about this delicious food: Snow Peas are low in fat, high in fiber and protein. But it’s also a good source of Vitamin C, folate, manganese, potassium, thiamin, and even protein!
So, while these babies are just delicious raw, dipped in a little ranch, we also like to eat them warm.
Our warm ST. Patty’s recipe follows, but I’d love to know how your family likes to eat Snow Peas!
