Cook's Notes

To trim snap peas, cut off stem end with a knife. Or, if the string is especially tough, snap off stem end with fingers, and pull string down the pod.

    I read the reviews and reread the recipe. The cup of water is not included in the ingredients (and I have always seen water as an ingredient when it is part of the recipe) so I decided to ignore it in the directions. Guess what? The dressing was great!

    I was diappointed in this recipe. The salad had wonderful ingredients though it was bland. I thought the dressing would perk it up but the dressing was not very good. As someone else said, a cup of water is way too much. I added 3/4 c and that was way too much. It was watery and not very tasty. The dressing needs somthing to perk it up.

      I also fell for the full cup of water trick. I think 1/4 water would be more than enough. To salvage, I added another recipe's worth of carrot, ginger, and scallion. Still too watery. So i added a tablespoon sesame oil, 2 tablespoons peanut butter, 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar, a tablespoon chili-garlic sauce, and a teaspoon of sugar. Vastly improved

    The salad is beautiful but the dressing turned out awful. Very watery. Was it really suppose to be a whole cup of water?

    MMMMMMMMMMmmeeooowww. This is SOOO good. Took a bit longer than I thought, but I also had to put dishes in the dishwasher. I LOVE sugar snap peas, just never thought to put them with SHRIMP. I've emailed the recipe to a number of folks, too. Enjoy this one with some additional veggies and/or a simple dessert.
