Snow Pea Medley

Here's a quick and easy side dish sure to please when opening a can of corn or green beans just won't do.  Side dishes are always a challenge for me.  I can do main dishes and desserts all day long, but when trying to come up with a side dish my brain turns to mush!  This side will go with a variety of entrees.  It's a winner.  My can opener can take the evening off.  Enjoy :)

SNOW PEA MEDLEY
1/3 cup chopped red onion
2 tsp canola oil
1/3 cup julienned sweet red pepper
1/3 cup julienned sweet yellow pepper
1/2 cup fresh snow peas
1/2  cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 tsp salt

In a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute onion in oil for 1-2 minutes.  Add peppers; cook for 2 minutes.  Stir in peas and mushrooms; saute 3-4 minutes longer or until veggies are crisp-tender.  Sprinkle with salt.

This looks really good. I'll have to include this dish next time I fix asian food. It would be the perfect side.
