Market Fresh: Snow Peas

Snow peas are such a delicious, healthy, and wonderful vegetable. They are great raw on a veggie tray with or without dip and they are an excellent addition to stir-frys. Today I’m sharing three recipes for crunchy, yummy snow peas. They are all adapted from foodnetwork.com and they are all vegetarian and gluten-free. We really liked all three! Hope you enjoy!
