I have never tasted black pepper peanuts! Are they sold as such or do you just roast them with black pepper? Either way, this is a great dish for this hot weather.

Chef E 29/5/10 16:22

Yes, explain the black pepper peanuts, are they boiled or roasted. Which I had boiled peanuts in Georgia and did not care for them, so I would say these look crunchy...this salad does look good!

tasteofbeirut, Chef E: I seriously thought the black pepper peanuts are something you can get everywhere! I got it from the local stores...there are even other flavours, like paprika, or herbs. They are dry roasted with black peppers.

Such a beautiful salad with fresh, colorful ingredients. I like your serving presentation. So inviting. Are you tossing your own black pepper peanuts or are they purchased that way?

Glad you explained the black pepper peanuts... must be a specialty seasoned item... but a really great idea for a summer salad, smart Angie! Anything with sundried tomatoes and peanuts would be yummy. And, your presentation looks really delicious and satisfying!
YUMMMMMMM
