Snap Peas with Fresh Herb-Scented Greens
Salads have come a long way from the days of iceberg lettuce and cottony tomatoes. If you're like me, when you think of salads, you envision a variety of crisp greens and vegetables--maybe even some spicy arugula.
This recipe was created by Amber Duncan, one of our Carilion chefs, who is a big advocate of in-season veggies.

- Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Add snap peas and cook until bright green but still crisp, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water.
- Toast almonds in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browed, 2 to 4 minutes.
- Whisk oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add lettuce, tomatoes, chives, tarragon, and the snap peas and toss. Serve sprinkled with the almonds.
