This recipe gets its name from the three different kinds of peas that are used in this salad: sugar snap peas, snow peas and petite peas.


  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas
  • 1/2 cup snow peas
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen petite peas, thawed
  • 6 cups (8 ounces) pea shoots or bean spouts


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Once boiling, add the sugar snap peas, cook for 2 minutes, and then add the snow peas and the petite peas. Cook the mixture for 1 additional minute and then drain and rinse under cold water to stop the peas from cooking any further.
  2. Place the sesame oil, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce and toasted sesame seeds into a bowl and whisk vigorously to combine.
  3. Pat the peas dry and then place into a shallow bowl. Add the pea shoots, followed by the prepared dressing, and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
