Lemon-Mint Snap Peas & Lima Beans

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/lemon_mint_snap_peas_lima_beans.html

From EatingWell:  May/June 2008

Fresh-tasting lemon-mint vinaigrette dresses up snap peas and lima beans in a hurry. The creamy texture of limas is a perfect counterpart to the crunch of the sugar snap peas. Try this vinaigrette with asparagus and green beans too.

6 servings, about 2/3 cup each | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Whisk shallot, oil, lemon juice, mint, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in a medium saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Steam snap peas and lima beans until the snap peas are tender-crisp and the lima beans are heated through, 5 to 7 minutes. Toss with the vinaigrette.
