    Tisme's Note:

    I made this recipe several years ago, and the family loved it. The next time I went to make it I had lost the recipe, and tried to make it by memory but it was never the same. I found it again today in one of my old cookbooks, and now I know why it never turned out the same, I had forgotten half the ingredients! So I am posting it here on zaar, just in case I loose it again.

      Fresh and light tasting! I liked the hint of sweetness from the sugar. Used fresh English peas and haircot verts. I did add a little lemon pepper seasoning as well. Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #57.

      We enjoyed this dish very much -- the lemon zest and juice really gave the peas and green beans a fresh taste. It was very easy to make and I will definitely make this dish again. Hopefully, we will have some leftovers for tomorrow. Made for the AUS/NZ Make My Recipe Tag, October, 2011.

      These are lovely and tasty. Nice fresh flavours. I used both frozen peas and beans and microwaved the sauce ingredients to warm the dressing. Went perfect with our lamb tonight.
