Sugar Snap Pea Salad

Standard

REVISED87This recipe is a bit of a cross between a vegetable salad and a slaw. It begins with beautiful fresh vegetables — juicy Cherry tomatoes and crisp Sugar Snap Peas. The addition of shredded carrot and chopped onion are ingredients of a traditional slaw combination. Finish it off with a mayonnaise-based dressing full of herbs and spices and you have created a hybrid salad/slaw. Such a wonderful mouthful of freshness . . . perfect to take along to upcoming cookouts.
