Directions

  1. Slice the vegetables: With a chef’s knife, cut the sugar snap peas on an extreme diagonal into thirds or halves, discarding any tough stem ends. Place in a plastic bag and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Make the dressing: Rub the cut side of one of the garlic halves over the inside of a small bowl. Add the lemon juice, salt, and sugar. Spear both garlic halves with a dinner fork. Using this as a whisk, drizzle in the olive oil until the sauce has formed a thin emulsion with a subtle garlic flavor; discard the garlic.
  3. Dress the vegetables: Up to 1/2 hour before serving, add the sugar snap peas and lemon zest and toss to coat; season with pepper to taste.
  4. Garnish with the cheese: Just before serving, using a mandoline or a vegetable peeler, shave the Parmigiano into paper-thin shavings. Scatter over the peas and toss gently.
