If you have a large strainer on hand, it's super-easy to blanch the snow peas. Just put them in a strainer, and once the water's boiling, lower the strainer into the water. When the cooking time is up, run the peas, still in the strainer, under cold water (or immerse them in a bowl of ice water). You can use this method to blanch nearly any type of veggie. You'll love how the snow peas go with Chinese cabbage, red peppers, and carrots. The dressing features fresh cilantro, vinegar, peanut butter, Dijon mustard, and lots of spices and nicely complements the veggies. It all combines to form a beautiful-looking, acidic, nutty slaw that hits all the right flavor profiles.
