Be sure to pat the snap peas thoroughly dry before tossing with the creamy yogurt-feta dressing so the dressing coats the peas instead of slipping off. Fresh mint gives this dish a decidedly Greek flavor, but dill would also taste great. The peas are a perfect side for grilled lamb chops or oregano-garlic seasoned chicken.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook trimmed fresh sugar snap peas in a large saucepan of boiling water, stirring often, until bright green, about 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, transfer peas to a large bowl of ice water. Let peas stand 5 minutes; drain. Pat peas dry with paper towels.

Step 2

Combine plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt, red wine vinegar, 2 Tbsp. water, finely minced garlic, fresh lemon juice, crumbled feta cheese, and chopped fresh mint in a blender. Process on high until creamy, 1 to 2 minutes.

Step 3

In a serving bowl, drizzle peas with yogurt mixture; toss well to coat. Sprinkle with lemon zest, toasted sesame seeds, crumbled feta cheese, and remaining chopped fresh mint.
