Snow Pea Salad

Today at Happy Healthy Living we have a snow pea salad with peppers and mushrooms. This is a very easy healthy recipe that combines well with many different main dishes. This Salad is especially good with grilled chicken or fish. It is a combination of a few salads that I liked and has a bit of an Asian influence.
