2 cups frozen acre peas

1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided


1/3 cup olive oil

1 teaspoon lemon zest

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/4 teaspoo ground black pepper

1 pint assorted baby tomatoes, halved

8 ounces small fresh mozzarella cheese balls, drained and halved

3/4 cup fresh corn kernels

1/3 cup chopped red onion

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

In a 3-quart saucepan, bring beans, peas, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and water to cover to a boil over medium-high heat: cook until vegetables are crips-tender, about 10 minutes.
