Sugar Snap Pea Salad With Ginger Soy Dressing

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

I love sugar snap peas and the crisp veggies in this salad. The sweetness of the ginger soy dressing adds a nice compliment. This is one of DH's favourite salads. Cook time is allowing for dressing to cool. Found this in one of my favourite magazine's "Cooking light".

I loved this recipe. I also find this is a wonderful dressing to serve on top of cooked salmon fillets. Yum Yum & Yum.

Heather, this was very tasty. I did omit the pepper flakes, because I can't handle the heat from them in anything. I also had to cut back a tiny bit on the garlic, as my husband was going to a meeting after dinner and I didn't want him to knock people over. LoL! Next time I'll use all of the amount called for. :)
