When you combine tender sugar snap peas with fresh blueberries, a fruity dressing, and a bit of crunch from the almonds, you’re in for a treat. This will make 6 side salads or 4 main course salads.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound sugar snap peas
  • 1 ½ cups arugula-baby spinach combo
  • ⅓ cup fresh blueberries
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon slivered almonds

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Cut ends off snap peas and pull off the tough strings running up the sides.
  2. 2 Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add snap peas, cover, and steam for 1 minute or until you reach desired tenderness. Don't overcook because you still want a little crunch.
  3. 3 Transfer peas to a bowl of ice water for a few minutes to stop the cooking and retain the bright green color; drain well. Transfer peas to a large bowl and add arugula-spinach combo and 2/3 cup blueberries.
  4. 4 Combine oil, blueberries, vinegar, and honey for dressing in a food processor or blender; process until smooth.
  5. 5 Drizzle dressing over salad mixture and toss until well coated. Sprinkle almonds over the top and serve.

Chef's Notes

I used a combination of arugula and baby spinach. If your store does not carry the arugula-baby spinach combo, you may use either one on its own. If I had to choose, I'd go with the arugula. Use as much of the dressing as suits your taste and if there is any left, store it in the fridge.
