      Delicious, fresh, flavorful!!! I love the slight crunch of the snow peas- I'm sure the radishes would have added even more but we didn't have any, and certainly didn't miss them. Same goes for the chives- we used scallion tops instead. The mint adds a lovely middle-eastern-esqe flair. Soooo delish. I must say that this dish would be so lovely with fish or chicken. We had it with steak and salad and enjoyed it thoroughly, nevertheless. Thanks for an awesome recipe!
