Tips:

  • In case, you do not have roasted peanuts you can dry roast a cup of fresh peanuts on a stove-top pan under medium flame, by stirring continuously.
  • Roast them until they change their colour  and  you get a pleasant aroma.
  • Once the roasted peanuts are cooled, powder them in a blender.
  • While mixing everything, just do it very gently once or twice.
  • Do not over mix the ingredients in the salad bowl.
  • I used brown sugar and hence my lemon juice mix is in such colour.
  • You can add the salt and sugar as per your taste.
  • Too much of lemon juice might make the salad watery.

Result:

  • The, cucumber peanut salad looks exactly as shown in the pic below.
  • It tastes sour, nutty and crunchy, most of all it’s very healthy with all natural stuff.
