Very delicious--however I pretty much only used the soy sauce and lemon juice for the dressing as I was missing all the other ingredients..still absolutely wonderful!

  2. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil, and add snow peas and carrots.
  3. Cook just until snow peas turn bright green, about 15 seconds, drain and plunge into cold water. Drain well and pat dry.
  4. Cut snow peas diagonally into ½-inch (1-cm) wide pieces. Place in a bowl along with carrots.
  5. To prepare dressing, whisk soy with lemon juice, sesame oil, sugar and wasabi powder, making sure sugar and wasabi powder are dissolved.
