Snap Pea Salad With Mint & Harissa

Mint creates such a fresh lift to the peas and the rich harissa-tahini dressing complements the crunch of the snap peas. 
Ingredients

Kosher salt 

1 kilo of snap peas, ends and strings removed 

1 medium clove garlic 

2 TBSP juice and 1 teaspoon grated zest from 1 lemon 

2 TBSP tahini 

1/4 cup Greek yogurt 

1 to 2 TBSP harissa paste 

3 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil 

Freshly ground black pepper 

1 small grated shallot 

12 finely chopped mint leaves 

Chilli flakes or crushed chillies 

Method

1. Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Have a bowl of iced water ready. Rapidly boil the snap peas for 2 minutes then strain the boiled water and put them in the ice water. 

2. Combine garlic and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in a mini chopper or blender. Blend until garlic is finely minced. Add tahini, yogurt, harissa, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil and blend to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside. 

3. Whisk together remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice, lemon zest, shallot, mint, and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large bowl. Drain snap peas and dry carefully in a salad spinner or on a paper towel-lined tray. Add to bowl with dressing and toss thoroughly to coat. Transfer to a serving platter and drizzle with harissa-tahini sauce. Sprinkle with chili flakes. Serve immediately.
