    Lemon and Olive Oil Dressing


    1. 1
      Slice the vegetables: With a chef’s knife, cut the sugar snap peas on an extreme diagonal into thirds or halves, discarding any tough stem ends. Place in a plastic bag and refrigerate until ready to serve.
    2. 2
      Make the dressing: Rub the cut side of one of the garlic halves over the inside of a small bowl. Add the lemon juice, salt, and sugar. Spear both garlic halves with a dinner fork. Using this as a whisk, drizzle in the olive oil until the sauce has formed a thin emulsion with a subtle garlic flavor; discard the garlic.
    3. 3
      Dress the vegetables: Up to 1/2 hour before serving, add the sugar snap peas and lemon zest and toss to coat; season with pepper to taste.
    4. 4
      Garnish with the cheese: Just before serving, using a mandoline or a vegetable peeler, shave the Parmigiano into paper-thin shavings. Scatter over the peas and toss gently.

      This is a fresh tasting salad that really complimented grilled salmon. For half a recipe, I did use a full garlic clove. Fresh lemon juice is a must in this recipe. I might see about reducing the olive oil next time around.
