Peanut Pineapple Salad

At the threshold of a new year, some very nostalgic thoughts are crowding my mind. This year has been quite a bit eventful. I have been to an array of exciting places including Niagara Falls, Chicago, Yercaud and Hyderabad. I have got myself engaged in things I enjoy pursuing like embroidery, cooking, reading and beading. All these have been possible because I have taken a professional break from the 9-5 job that killed me with boredom and monotony. I am now spending time the way I want without staying bound by routine.

Peanut Pineapple Salad is a simple fruit salad with few this and that ingredients added to heighten the flavour.

Ingredients:                                       Preparation time: 10 minutes

ü  1/2 cup of dry roasted peanuts

ü  1 tsp of dry roasted watermelon seeds

ü  1/2 cup of pineapple

ü  1/2 cup of cucumber

ü  1/2 cup of apple

ü  1 tbsp lemon juice

ü  1 tsp of black pepper powder

ü  Few sprigs of coriander leaves (chopped)

ü  1 tsp sugar

ü  Salt to taste

ü  Paneer, grated (optional)


Just mix in all the ingredients in a bowl and have a feast.
