Steamed, and then chilled, sugar snap peas are tossed with a creamy fresh tarragon dressing to make a delicious and aromatic dish. Double the recipe and add shredded chicken for a lovely main-dish salad.


  • 1 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed (about 4 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste


  1. Place the peas in a steamer basket over a saucepan of boiling water and steam for 6 minutes. Spread the cooked peas onto a clean surface to cool and then place in a bowl and refrigerate for 25 minutes to chill.
  2. In the meantime, put the mayonnaise, yogurt, tarragon, salt and about 5 grinds of fresh pepper into a bowl and whisk vigorously until completely blended.
  3. Pour the dressing over the chilled peas and toss well to coat. Serve immediately.
