150g sugar snap peas, trimmed
2 avocados, halved, stones removed, peeled, sliced

Ginger dressing

1 1/2 tablespoons Japanese rice vinegar (see note)
1cm piece ginger, peeled, finely grated
1 teaspoon caster sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil

2. Meanwhile, bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil over high heat. Add sugar snap peas and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until bright green and tender. Drain and refresh under cold water. Pat dry with paper towel.
