What a bright and pretty salad! The black pepper peanuts are an interesting addition!

tasteofbeirut 29/5/10 14:44

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.

ICook4Fun 29/5/10 14:47

That is one refreshing salad especially in our warm weather here. The black pepper peanuts sound interesting.

My Little Space 29/5/10 15:02

Cheers, Kristy

I think colorful salads like this are just the best! I'm also a total sucker for peanuts. How delicious!

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!

Jagruti જાગૃતિ 29/5/10 16:31

Amazing and innovative..looks so refreshing!!!

Angie's Recipes 29/5/10 16:35

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.

Magic of Spice 29/5/10 17:56

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?

Claudia 30/5/10 01:19

I do love those ingredients - not sure if I've seen black pepper peanuts before - but of course never looked. I am in summer salad mode though and this will grace my table.

Refreshing salad. Perfect for this heat.

Cristina, peanutts: I got the peppery nuts from the local stores. A very popular peanut snack here.

A Canadian Foodie 30/5/10 12:44

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!
