Snap Pea Salad with Zesty Lemon French dressing

We at all times love the possibility to focus on our favourite veggies, and the star of the present at this time is the (crunchy & candy) snap pea! Our obsession with snap peas began earlier this yr once we found the magic that’s sautéed snap peas, and now we’re bringing you a easy and contemporary snap pea salad!

This salad is the proper steadiness of shiny, tangy, and savory. It’s scrumptious served with pasta or fish, and it requires simply 10 elements, quarter-hour, and 1 bowl. Let’s snap to it!

Tips on how to Make Snap Pea Salad

This recipe begins with a easy, lemony, mustard-infused dressing that contrasts superbly with the crunchy, subtly candy snap peas. It has waves of taste from contemporary garlic, salt, pepper, and shallot with maple syrup to offer just a little candy steadiness and olive oil for richness.

To reduce soiled dishes, we combine the dressing in a big serving bowl after which add the remaining elements straight into that bowl. However be happy to shake up the dressing in a jar in case you’re making it forward or if that’s extra your fashion.

The remaining salad elements embody contemporary basil (or different mushy herbs like mint or tarragon) for herby goodness, chopped pistachios for richness and crunch, and optionally available purple pepper flakes for just a little warmth and coloration distinction.

Give it a toss, and put together your tastebuds for deliciousness!

Does it hold? Greatest when contemporary


  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or grated
  • 1 ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (or honey if not vegan)
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped shallot (optionally available)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (plus extra to style)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  • 4 cups thinly sliced sugar snap peas, ends trimmed, sliced at a diagonal
  • 1/4 cup chopped contemporary basil (plus extra for garnish // or sub tarragon or mint leaves)
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped roasted salted pistachios (plus extra for garnish // or sub different roasted salted nut or seed of selection)
  • 1/8 -1/4 tsp crushed purple pepper flakes (optionally available)
  • In a big serving bowl, mix the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, mustard, maple syrup or honey, shallot (optionally available), salt, and pepper. Whisk to emulsify.

  • SALAD: To the identical bowl, add the snap peas, basil, and pistachios and toss to mix and coat with the dressing. Style and alter as wanted, including extra lemon juice for brightness, maple syrup for sweetness, or salt to style.

  • Garnish with further basil and pistachios and the purple pepper flakes (optionally available). Serve instantly.

  • Greatest when contemporary. The dressing might be made as much as 3 days upfront by including the elements to a jar with a lid and shaking to mix. Let it come to room temperature earlier than tossing with the snap peas, basil, and pistachios. Not freezer pleasant.
