With the machine on, add the oil in a thin stream and blend until pureed. Transfer to a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add salt to the boiling water, then blanch the sugar snap peas until just tender and bright green, about 3 minutes. Drain well, transfer to a bowl and toss with about 1 tablespoon of the mint oil. Serve with lemon wedges.
