Warm Snow-Pea


Chicken Salad

Snow-Pea ~ Super Salads

Snow peas are flatter than garden.

And since they're not fully opaque.

You can usually see the shadows of the flat green orbs within.

Snap, which are a cross between the garden and snow.

Have plump pods with a crisp, snappy texture.

The pods of both are edible.

And both feature a slightly sweeter and cooler taste than the garden pea.

And the great news is, they aren’t just for stir-fries any more.

Thinly sliced, their crunchy texture and sweet taste combine with a creamy Asian dressing to make this salad special.

Makes 4 servings, 1-1/4 c. each.

Total Time: 40 minutes.

Ease of Preparation: Easy.


1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed.

1 14-oz. can reduced-sodium chicken broth.

3 Tbs. rice wine vinegar.

3 Tbs. reduced-sodium soy sauce.

3 tsp. toasted sesame oil, divided.

2 Tbs. tahini or cashew butter.

1 Tbs. minced fresh ginger.

2 cloves garlic, minced.

1 lb. snow-peas, trimmed and thinly slivered lengthwise.

2 Tbs. chopped cashews.


1. Place chicken in a medium skillet or saucepan and add broth; bring to a boil.

Cover, reduce heat to low.

And simmer gently until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes.

Transfer the chicken to a cutting board to cool.

Shred into bite-size pieces.

Cool and refrigerate the broth, reserving it for another use.

2. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, soy sauce, 2 tsp. sesame oil and tahini (or cashew butter) in a large bowl until smooth.

3. Heat the remaining 1 tsp. oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.

Add ginger and garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Stir in slivered peas and cook, stirring, until bright green, 3 to 4 minutes.

Transfer to the bowl with the dressing.

4. Add the chicken to the bowl; toss to combine.

Serve sprinkled with cashews and voila.

Simply sensational!
