A quick and healthy side that is packed with flavor. I agree with sugarpea the combination of herbs and lemon juice really add to the sweetness of the peas.

For some reason these seasonings, herbs and juice make the peas taste even sweeter. Of course, basil is one of my favorites. Great way to heighten the enjoyment of garden fresh snap peas. Yum.
