Honey Lime Peas

I was hesitant to post this recipe today, since it contains chives and I have had a few recipes lately that call for chives. All I can say is...I'm sorry but I'm on a chive kick and this is a great Easter recipe! It's fresh and funky and tangy and sweet. A perfect spring side dish that can be served warm or chilled. It's so simple and straightfoward I can't even think of any tips to offer up. Enjoy!

Honey Lime Peas
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon brown mustard
2 tablespoons honey
The juice of 1 large lime
2 tablespoons fresh snipped chives
2 teaspoons salt (I used sea salt)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2  teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 12oz bags Frozen Peas, cooked according to package

Combine all ingredients except the olive oil and peas, in a food processor or blender. Pulse to combine. Slowly stream in olive oil. Once the mixture is well blended, pour over peas and toss to coat. Serve chilled or warm.
