Springtime Salads – Peas and Peanuts

The now-defunct Embers Restaurant in Mount Pleasant, Michigan served a salad that I have never forgotten. Sweet and creamy, their Peas and Peanuts was made with Miracle Whip and Spanish peanuts. Taking advantage of fresh spring peas makes this salad worth revisiting with roasted, unsalted peanuts and a lighter vinaigrette. (Although it is still pretty great with a mayonnaise base as well!)
