Judging from personal experience, these Peppadew Peppers are likely to elicit a sudden smile of delight and surprise from your guests. Someone will probably say something like: "Wow, what are these?" I can pretty much guarantee that this appetizer won't go unnoticed. The taste is something new - still a red pepper, but with an amazing depth of flavor that is hard to describe, but I'll try: sweet, spicy, pickled, peppery. That's the best I can do. You really have to try them for yourself.
Tuna dip has been a long-time favorite of mine, but I only recently discovered pairing it with these peppers. Tuna and peppadew peppers are a perfect match.
The recipe comes from a fantastic cookbook called "Urban Italian." For variety I like to serve a small bowl of tuna dip with crackers and cornichons alongside the tuna-stuffed peppers.Print
