    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.

    Ingredients

    • 1 small shallot, minced
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons 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

    Instructions

    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.
