The combination of lettuce, peas and mint is a French classic. Sugar is optional in this recipe, depending on how sweet and fresh the peas are. The recipe can be easily multiplied.

Melt the butter in a small pan over high heat. Add the peas and cook for 2 minutes. Cover, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 3 minutes, or until the peas are tender. Stir in the mint. Cook for 2 minutes longer. Add the lettuce. Cook until the lettuce has wilted. Remove from the heat and add the salt and sugar, if desired.
