Crisp chilled snap peas with creamy tarragon dressing make a nice alternative to a lettuce-based salad. The dressing can be doubled and used for chicken salad. Substitute fresh or dried dill for the tarragon if you like.

Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate peas and dressing separately for up to 1 day. Toss together just before serving.
