Recently over dinner a friend posed a simple question asking about everyones' favorite vegetable.  Surprisingly I struggled to find an answer and having been pondering it over the last few days.  There are just so many good ones, I don't know if I can choose a favorite.  However if I think back to my childhood and even college days, sugar snap peas would rank up there as a favorite.  The are delicious raw or cooked and I love the sweet crunch.  One of my favorite recipes for sugar snap peas is this simple farro salad with dried cranberries.  It's hearty and tasty and gets better after a night in the fridge.
