Sugar Snap Peas with Walnuts and Feta

This is so simple it almost isn't a recipe, but I wanted to share the latest way I came up with to enjoy the delicious snap peas at the farmer's market. I have a hard time even keeping the peas around long enough to make something with them since they're so delicious raw.

Sugar Snap Peas with Walnuts and Feta

makes 4 to 6 side-dish servings

1 T. roasted walnut oil
1 t. rice vinegar1 lb. sugar snap peas, trimmed
1/2 c. walnuts, roughly chopped
1/2 c. crumbled feta cheese

1. In a small bowl combine oil and vinegar and whisk to emulsify. Season to taste with salt and pepper if desired. Set aside.

2. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add peas and cook for 2 minutes until peas are bright green and crisp tender. Drain.

3. Add cheese, walnuts, and vinaigrette to warm peas and toss well to combine. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled.
