2 Fresno chile peppers, thinly sliced
½ cup white wine vinegar
¼ cup sugar
½ tablespoon kosher salt
1 ½ pounds sugar snap peas, divided
½ cup whole fat Greek yogurt
½ cup buttermilk
1 Lemon, zest and juice
1 clove garlic, finely grated
2 tablespoons mint, torn into pieces
1 tablespoons basil, torn into pieces
Flaky sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper
Place chiles in a small glass jar. Bring vinegar, sugar, and kosher salt to a boil in a small saucepan until sugar and salt are dissolved. Pour the mixture over the chiles and let cool. Can be made a week ahead, chilled.
Whisk Greek yogurt, buttermilk, lemon juice, garlic, and a large pinch of kosher salt in a medium bowl.
Preheat grill to medium high heat. Toss half of snap peas with 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium and season with salt and pepper. Grill turning occasionally until lightly charred, about 3-4 minutes, return to bowl.
Cut raw peas in half crosswise on a diagonal and toss with grilled peas, season with black pepper. Spoon buttermilk yogurt mixture onto a platter and top with snap peas. Scatter herbs, pickled chiles, and flaky salt over the peas. Drizzle with good quality olive oil and serve.
