I used snow peas from my garden in this dish. It was very simple and tasty. I liked the vinaigrette fine, but cut back on the salt and pepper by half just to play it safe. Served with Recipe#221594 for a very tasty and satisfying lunch. Thank you, SweetSueAl! [Made for Bargain Basement Tag]

As a person who does not like most salad dressings, this amount of vinegar was way too strong for me. If I try this vinaigrette again, I will definitely reduce that part. The peas came out nicely but without the dressing was too plain for my partner and ended up mixed into a green salad, although he likes sugar snap peas. This will take some tweaking for us.
