In a large bowl, whisk together shallot, vinegar, lemon zest and juice, mustard, maple syrup, salt and pepper; gradually whisk in olive oil until blended. Stir in mint. Set aside.

In large pot of boiling salted water, cook sugar snap peas, snow peas and frozen peas until bright green and tender-crisp, about 1 minute. Drain and transfer to large bowl of ice water to chill. Drain well.
