Buttered Sugar Snaps and Green Peas

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by TasteTester

This is one of the side dishes that is always on my Easter menu. It has a fresh, light taste, and the mint really brightens up the flavor. It can be made ahead a day early through Step 1, if desired.

We had this as a side with the first of our two Christmas dinners and everyone enjoyed them very much. They reheat well also, since I had a bit left over and don't like to waste anything.
