Sweet Sugar Snap Peas: Cook Once, Eat Twice
Sugar Snaps are easy to prepare; they only need to be “stringed” then blanched for about two minutes on simmer. Once you pre-cook them, sugar snap peas become an easy and welcome addition to salads, stir-fries, and cool summer dinners. They offer a burst of crunchy texture, and you can eat the tender outer pod, which means no time spent shelling.
Day One (Side Dish): Vegetarian summer rolls require no frying whatsoever, and they’re served chilled, so you can easily make them ahead of time and store them in the fridge. They’re a great as an appetizer or as a substitute for salad.
Day Two (Salad): A chilled sugar snap salad — with a creamy, yogurt-based tarragon dressing that’s so cooling during these hot days — requires only a few ingredients, all of which can be found in most home pantries. The salad also travels well in Tupperware dish, making it ideal for taking to summer parties.
