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.
