I was making a spring-themed dinner for a friend who is watching her fat intake and came up with this easy side dish that combines very flavorful ingredients that really highlight the peas. - gluttonforlife —gluttonforlife

Test Kitchen Notes

A tasty and simple way to savor peas, I used preserved Meyer lemons when I prepared this. The mint overshadowed the subtleties of the almond oil, but the preserved lemon and mint combo is delicious! I'd do this recipe again. (Confession: I put a dab of butter on the peas after tossing!) - Amber Olson —The Editors
