Sugar Snap Pea Salad with Pine Nut-Kasha Granola & Ricotta

2 1/4 cups rolled oats
2/3 cup kasha (roasted buckwheat groats)
1/2 cup flaxseeds
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 pound sugar snap peas
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
Maldon sea salt
Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
1 pound fresh ricotta cheese
Chopped mint, for garnish

MAKE THE GRANOLA Preheat the oven to 325° and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, toss the oats with the kasha, flaxseeds and pine nuts. Add the remaining granola ingredients and toss until thoroughly coated, then spread on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the granola in the center of the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until golden and nearly dry. Turn off the oven and prop the door open halfway; let the granola cool in the oven, stirring occasionally.
MAKE THE SALAD In a medium saucepan of salted boiling water, simmer the snap peas until bright green and crisp-tender, about 1 minute. Drain and cool the snap peas under running water, pat dry and halve them lengthwise. In a medium bowl, toss the snap peas with the lemon juice and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil, then season with Maldon sea salt and pepper.
In another medium bowl, whisk the ricotta until smooth and season with kosher salt and pepper. Spoon the ricotta onto plates and top with the snap peas. Sprinkle some of the granola on the peas and garnish with a drizzle of olive oil and chopped mint. Serve right away.
MAKE AHEAD This recipe makes 5 cups of granola, which can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
