1 small package of snap peas, blanched and cut in half on the diagonal

1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped

1 bunch green onion, finely chopped

1 recipe of Orange Soy Ginger Vinaigrette

All ingredients, except mint, can be prepared earlier in the day. Add mint and dressing just prior to serving. Toss. I did not add additional salt or pepper. The dressing and fresh herbs deliver the flavor.
