Fresh Mint Leaves. Cucumber. Curd. being the main ingredients of this recipe led me to name it Summer Coolant Salad. Pasta gives body to the salad, peanuts give the salad a nice crunch; whereas, the rest of the ingredients enhance the taste of the dish. It is refreshing and at the same time very nutritious.
