Sugar Snap Peas and Radishes

Chris went to the farmers market the other day and picked up some sugar snap peas and radishes. We were trying to think of something to make with these. We ended up deciding to saute them all together with a little sauce. We both usually don't go for radishes, but these were delicious. I don't know much about radishes, but they picked up so much flavor. This was a very refreshing salad. We cooked up a chicken breast to eat along side. Also a funny thing about this recipe, just a few days after we made it nytimes had an article with a very similar recipe. I think sometimes, recipes are made based on what is fresh and in season.

1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 of a red onion chopped up
12 ounces sugar snap peas, you will want to clean and trim them.
2 cups thinly sliced radishes
1/4 cup orange vinegar- or use any type of citrus juice mixed with a little vinegar.
2 tablespoons fresh dill chopped

Clean the radishes and then trim then nice and thin. They are so beautiful! Once you have everything ready to go heat the oil and butter in a pan. When it is hot, saute the red onion for about 5 minutes. Then you can add in the sugar snap peas, cook for about 3 minutes. Now you can add in the radishes and cook for about 3 more minutes. Now you can add in the orange vinegar.

Once it is all tossed together toss the dill in, mix it up and serve.
