Roasted Peanut Salad Recipe

Roasted Peanut Salad

This is a traditional Indian street food. It is served wrapped in a hand made paper cone or in a banana leaf. Use the roasted peanuts as a base and add cucumber, tomato and carrots to create a healthy side dish or salad. Make sure to dress the salad right before serving so the peanuts stay crunchy.

1/2 tsp. Cumin, or more to taste

2 Tbsp. Cilantro, diced

1/3 c. Roma Tomato, seeded and diced, optional
