Edamame and Snap Peas in Seasame Vinaigrette Recipe from Lemonade
Edamame and Snap Peas

Makes: 4 cups


 ½ pound sugar snap peas (2 cups), ends trimmed
2 cups shelled edamame (green soybeans), frozen, thawed, and cooked
1 large shallot, minced
¼ cup chopped fresh chives
½ cup sesame vinaigrette
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
½ teaspoon coarse salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


1. Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil over high heat.
2. Prepare an ice bath by filling a large bowl halfway with water and adding a tray of ice cubes.
3. Blanch the snap peas for only about 2 minutes; they become tender very quickly. Using a slotted spoon, remove the snap peas from the water and plunge into the ice bath to "shock" them, i.e., to stop the cooking process and cool them down right away. This procedure also sets the vibrant green color of the peas. Drain the snap peas in a colander.
4. Put the blanched snap peas in a mixing bowl. Add the edamame, chives, and vinaigrette, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds, salt, and pepper, tossing well. Serve chilled.
