Very tasty and easy side dish! I was looking for something to accompany an asian-style chicken dish and this was perfect. I personally would've blanched the peas just maybe a minute longer but my dinner guests liked them this way just fine!

I was looking for a dish to use up the rest of my snow peas I had on hand. I came across this and was so glad that I did. DH didn't really care for it. (He said "I don't like beans!" I said "these are not beans!!!") Repeat this a couple of times and you will start to feel my frustration.... any way we are still married. I do plan to make this again. Thanks Dancer for posting.
