These flavorful peas are perfect accompaniment to dinner on a hot summer evening. The sweetness of the sugar snaps gets additional crunch and a little Asian flair from the sesame seeds and ginger. Served cold, these make a great appetizers as well since the texture of the peas is crunchy even when cooked. Try this treatment with other vegetables such as carrot coins or broccoli for more side options. With only 4 ingredients and less that 20 minutes to prepare, this dish is a go-to weeknight win!
