  • 3 medium tomatoes, sliced thin

  • 1 small bunch cilantro, chopped (about 1 cup chopped)

  • 1/4 cup roasted and salted peanuts, finely chopped

Garnish:
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

  • Fresh-ground black pepper, to taste

Steps:
  • Chill thawed shrimp in the refrigerator while you prepare the rest of the salad.

  • In a large bowl, combine the remaining salad ingredients and toss gently.

  • In a small bowl, combine all dressing ingredients and stir well until sugar is dissolved.

  • Remove the shrimp from the refrigerator and toss them into the salad.

  • Garnish with the lime wedges and black pepper.

  • Serve with a few teaspoonfuls of dressing on each plate, or serve the salad with the dressing on the side.
