Author Notes: I happened to pass by the Union Square greenmarket when I was wandering around downtown this weekend, and couldn't help myself: I bought enough fresh fruits and vegetables to last a month. This recipe was inspired by the fresh- and delicious-looking snap peas I found there. I wanted something that would add to their flavor but not overwhelm it. This was perfect - the mustard and chives gave a sweet and spicy finish, and the bit of butter created a glazed, gourmet look.athaler11
