NUTRITIOUS SALAD

They say the more colorful a salad the more nutritious it is! I  have always enjoyed a simple salad dressing..salt, olive oil and lemon and maybe a few herbs or a pinch of cumin powder….
I had cooked some peanuts with the skin on in the pressure cooker and i wanted to make a salad out of it
The peanuts were yummy on their own too (to boil them add water in a pressure cooker and the peanuts and salt and pressure cook them for about 10 whisles – add ample water coz these peanuts tend to increase in size once boiled)
You can add your own ingredients to the salad but this is what i did
INGREDIENTS
1 small bowl of peanus
1 bowl of cherry tomatoes, halved
1 spanish cucumber cut into rounds
1/4 cup each of chopped green capsicum and onion
DRESSING
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
salt and olive oil
OPTIONAL: a pinch of cumin powder and black pepper
Arrange the vegetables in a pretty plate and top with the peanuts and capsicum and onion
drizzle the dressing on the top and serve!!
