      DH loved them, I liked them; hence 4 stars. I love a similar recipe with green beans and hot peppers and mustard seeds - it's one of my favorites. Someone the snap peas didn't work so well for me - the sweetness of them was at odds with the mustard seeds, lemon, and thyme. Obviously, DH thought it paired extremely well, however, so if you like these flavors, give it a try.
