Summer Coolant Salad




Introduction: Summer Coolant Salad

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.

Step 1: Collect Your Ingredients

2 cups cold cooked durum wheat pasta (I’ve used Chifferi Rigati), 1 cup sweet corn kernels, A handful of fresh mint leaves, ½ cup finely diced cucumber, 1 finely chopped de-seeded green chili, 2 tbsp crushed peanuts (add more if you like), ½ cup curd, chili flakes, freshly ground black pepper, salt for seasoning, juice of 1 lemon

Step 2: Prepare the Dressing

Add curd and mint leaves in a mixer grinder and blitz. Add in a little seasoning too at this time along with lemon juice and 1 tsp olive oil.

Step 3: Combine Well

Pour the mint dressing over the salad and sprinkle the leftover seasoning. Toss well.
