From the Test Kitchen

Bright, crisp snow peas are among the season’s finest produce. In this recipe, they add plenty of springtime freshness to our vegetable hash. We’re blanching our snow peas to soften them and preserve their gorgeous color before sautéing them with browned potatoes, radishes and onion as a side for pan-seared pork chops. And we’re completing the dish with a lighter take on classic ranch dressing (for dipping)—made simply with tart yogurt, lemon juice and a signature blend of herby, zesty seasonings.
