Lemon-Mint Snap Peas & Lima Beans

Fresh-tasting lemon-mint vinaigrette dresses up snap peas and lima beans in a hurry. The creamy texture of limas is a perfect counterpart to the crunch of the sugar snap peas. Try this vinaigrette with asparagus and green beans too.

Serves 6

Prep Time 15 min

Total Time 15 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 10 ounces frozen baby lima beans, thawed

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Whisk shallot, oil, lemon juice, mint, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

Step 2

Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in a medium saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Steam snap peas and lima beans until the snap peas are tender-crisp and the lima beans are heated through, 5 to 7 minutes. Toss with the vinaigrette.
