Cucumber Peanut Salad

Photobucket

Is it summer yet or winter???!! Chennai people would have this doubt every single day. One can never predict rains here. Even the weather forecast on the papers or news would go absolutely reverse. We can even expect days in December to be scorching in the morning. Uffff!!!

A chill salad at anytime of the day throughout the year would make your tummy smile and your body refreshing. Opt for it instead of any fried snacks and you can sure reach zero figure :P

The ground peanuts give a very crunchy texture to this salad and makes it all new and delicious :)
