From: EatingWell Magazine, May/June 2016

Sweet, crisp and snappy, this healthy pea salad recipe is all about the sugar snaps, plus a little Aleppo pepper for some heat. The creamy sheep- or goat's-milk cheese adds a touch of richness and the edible flowers give it a gorgeous pop of color. Serve this beautiful salad alongside lemon-grilled chicken or fish.

  1. Cut snap peas in half lengthwise. Very thinly slice radishes into coin shapes or half-moons. Toss the peas, radishes, mint and cheese in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss with lemon juice and oil. Serve garnished with a sprinkle of Aleppo pepper and flowers, if desired.
  • Named for the Syrian town, crushed dried Aleppo pepper has a moderate heat with a hint of fruity tang. Use it as you would other crushed chile peppers. Find it in specialty markets and from online spice purveyors.

It is hard to believe that so few ingredients can make such a fantastic salad! Made exactly as written (minus the flowers); don't leave out the mint! It makes this salad perfect! I served it with Lemon and Dill Chicken from this site and whole wheat orzo.
