“Sugar snap peas are a delicious vegetable that often gets overlooked,” notes Mitzi Sentiff in Annapolis, Maryland. “We love the flavor of this crunchy side dish and its splash of lemon with broiled fish, chicken or pork.”


  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1-1/2 pounds fresh snow peas
  • 1 cup chopped sweet yellow pepper
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large skillet, saute garlic in oil for 30 seconds. Add snow peas and yellow pepper; saute for 2-3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir in the remaining ingredients; saute 1 minute longer. Serve immediately.
