Cucumber Peanut Salad is a quick recipe for this weekend, that was initiated with the Weekend’s fresh veggie shopping. We had this for our afternoon lunch. This can be part of the lettuce wraps or eaten just as it is or can be used for a tortilla wrap….tastes so good my kids asked for another serving!! 

You surely, do need to try this simple salad recipe to satisfy the purpose of those fresh veggies not to be willing to be cooked !! 🙂

    Mixing lemon juice , with the rest of ingredients in the salad bowl

Tips:

  • In case, you do not have roasted peanuts you can dry roast a cup of fresh peanuts on a stove-top pan.
  • 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 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.
