Sesame Snap Peas

I got this recipe from Ina Garten and made a few changes to make them even tastier.

Remove strings from peas.

Boil water and once to a rapid boil add salt. Blanch the peas for 30 seconds then put in ice bath. Remove peas and place in bowl.

Add a few dashes of sesame oil to lightly cover peas then add black sesame seeds and a small dash of salt.

Use a a side or keep in frig as a snack.


Seven Layer Greek Dip….

Love Aldi’s hummus and Wegman’s French Feta (it’s a splurge but so worth it).

I make this dip for parties and use more hummus and Greek yogurt but I was just making it for the family so I made a much smaller batch.

Place hummus in the bottom of a container with a lid then add Greek yogurt mixed with a little dill. Add chopped tomatoes, red onion, kalamata olives, cucumber and sprinkle with feta.

Serve with pita chips. Enjoy!

Again, if taking to a party use a larger glass dish. Go light on the red onions.
