I wish I could remember where this salad originated from!! I’ve been making it for several years. Hubby and I are fans of salads that aren’t made with mayo.

  2. To prepare the salad, cook peas in boiling water 30 seconds.** Drain and rinse in cold water. combine peas and remaining ingredients except sesame seeds. Drizzle dressing over salad, toss well. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  4. They steam better!

Reviews – Chinese Sugar Snap Pea Salad Recipes

Oh this is sooo good!!! My favorite flavors & lots of pretty veggies. I skipped the shrooms because I just don’t like them. I got prepackaged julienned carrots. Nice & simple. And this recipe multiplies very easily. Thanks, Sistah!

I really like this! I planned on one serving and had second helpings! The flavors and the texture were perfect!! Thanks Katie!

After trimming and rinsing the peas, I put them in a microwave safe dish, covered and microwave for about 2 minutes. Drizzled with the dressing and had a beautiful, crunchy salad.

Yummy! I love the squeaky crisp crunch of the peas! Flavored just right.I sauteed the red bell peppers and mushrooms while I microwaved the peas for 2 minutes then tossed all together.
