Sautéed Sugar Snaps, Snow Peas and Cilantro

Sugar snap peas add springy panache to a dish, especially when they're cut at a sharp angle. Mix them with bold, chopped cilantro, and you've got a killer flavor combo.

1 tablespoon canola oil
4 oz. snow peas, halved diagonally (1 1/2 cups)
4 oz. sugar snap peas, halved diagonally (1 1/2 cups)
