Sugar Snap Salad


1 1/2 pounds sugar snap peas, trimmed, stringed, cut in half on diagonal

Kosher salt

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon (or more) fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon white wine vinegar

1/2 teaspoon sumac plus more for garnish

1 bunch radishes (about 6 ounces), trimmed, thinly sliced

4 ounces ricotta salata or feta, crumbled (ricotta salata is a salted, aged ricotta cheese, available at better supermarkets and at specialty foods stores and Italian markets)

Freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh mint


1. Fill a large bowl with ice water; set aside. Cook peas in a large pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Drain; transfer to bowl with ice water to cool. Drain peas; transfer to a kitchen towel-lined baking sheet to dry.

2. Whisk oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, vinegar, and 1/2 teaspoon sumac in a small bowl. Toss peas, radishes, and cheese in a large bowl.

3. Add dressing to salad and toss to coat. Season salad with salt, pepper, and more lemon juice, if desired. Garnish with mint and sprinkle with sumac.
