3 cups trimmed sugar snap peas
1 teaspoon lemon rind
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons olive oil
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon sugar (optional)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
Cook snap peas in boiling water for 2 minutes (or steam lightly in a microwave) until crisp-tender; drain.
Combine lemon rind, juice, oil, salt, (and sugar if desired-peas may be sweet enough without any sugar!) Stir with a whisk. Add peas and mint.
