Many a times simple recipes tend to be way better than recipes where you have to put in a lot of time and effort. Salad recipes are such no-brainer recipes. It’s very easy to put together, when done right it tastes great and is good for your body too. This sugar snap pea salad recipe is even easier than most of the other salad recipes I have blogged here. The chopping/grating a load of vegetables is also eliminated. Just buy some fresh sugar snap peas, wash it and you are good to go.
