Corn, snap pea, cucumber & spinach salad.

Expectations:

1 to 2 minutes of prep work (cutting the ends off of the snap peas & slicing the cucumbers) and about 4 or 5 minutes to cook.

Cut sugar snap peas & cucumber rounds
Very little chopping for this salad, trim the sugar snap peas and slice a cucumber if using.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • About 1 1/2 cups of frozen corn kernels
  • 2 cups of sugar snap peas (stems on each end trimmed off)
  • 1 cup of baby spinach leaves
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Optional: 1 cup of cucumbers sliced into small rounds
  • Optional: A dash or two of Sriracha or another hot sauce to taste (for the grownups)

Steps to put this on your table:

  • Warm olive oil a medium sauce pan on high heat until it’s hot.
  • Add the frozen corn and saute rapidly for about 2 minutes.  Reduce heat to medium high.
Warm up frozen corn kernels on high heat to start.
  • Add the snap peas to the pan and sauté for another 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the snap peas to the corn kernels for an extra 2 or 3 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat.  Remove the the kids’ servings.  Then, add the salt, pepper, baby spinach leaves, cucumbers & hot sauce (if using) for the grown ups.
Add the spinach after the snap peas & corn are heated through, salt, pepper & hot sauce to taste.
  • Cover to keep warm until it’s ready to serve.
