Sugar snap peas are one of those vegetables I buy and then I’m not sure what to do with them, other than putting them in a stir-fry or just munching them raw. They are a cute little bunch of pods and they hold up really well to cooking, keeping their crunch.

If you don’t have or don’t care for snap peas, you can make the same recipe with fresh green beans, asparagus, snow peas, or whatever vegetable you choose. I’ve made it several times already using different vegetables. The vinaigrette is great for any salad or even a warm potato salad. Yum!

Bring this dish to your next cookout or pot luck get-together. My Snap Pea Salad with Almonds in an Herbed Vinaigrette will be very popular, so make a large batch. Enjoy!

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Soy Free Vegan




For the Herbed Vinaigrette

  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. agave nectar
  • Zest and juice of ½ fresh lemon
  • 1 Tbs. fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 Tbs. fresh basil, chopped
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt to taste

For the Snap Pea Salad

  • 1 ½ lbs. fresh snap peas, stems trimmed
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds


  1. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the vinaigrette. Whisk until everything is well combined. Add salt to taste. Set aside until ready to use.
  2. In a large pot, boil water and add some salt. Cook the snap peas for just a few minutes, until they turn bright green. Drain the peas and run them under cold water (or dip them in an ice bath) to stop the cooking.
  3. Transfer the snap peas to a bowl. Toss with the vinaigrette. Sprinkle almonds on top. Serve.




When Rhea became vegan, there were no places in her Bronx neighborhood to eat so she had to learn to cook, mostly by watching TV cooking shows, especially Christina Pirello and Rachael Ray.  That led to the creation of The "V" Word website which focuses on vegan versions of favorite, familiar foods. Rhea has written several e-cookbooks which are available on her web site. It is Rhea's hope that she can spread the "V" Word to bring more compassion into the world and it is her dream to become the vegan Rachael Ray.
