😀 Hello! Hope you all are well! The last time I posted was January 8 – where does the time go, my friends? Wish I could find it, 😛
So, what do I have to share today? Well, it’s a delicious and easy salad based on Peanut Chaat, an Indian peanut salad. I’ve taken quite a few liberties with the traditional recipe. For one, the salad is usually made with boiled peanuts, but I subbed in unsalted dry-roasted peanuts. Also, I added avocado, simply because it was in the fridge and needed to be used. Finally, I used parsley and mint, rather than cilantro and mint. I love cilantro in this recipe, but I didn’t have any, so parsley it was! Simple, delicious, flavorful – my kind of salad!
