Orange and Peanut Salad

Chennaites are going through a punishing weather these days. I am drinking gallons of water and juice to beat the heat :) Sometimes I also include fruit salads to this list.

What about a salad which is a bit spicy and crunchy? Would be an amazing combination right? I loved it completely when I prepared it for first time. Give it a try and I am sure you'll like it.

Basic Information:

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2


Oranges - 2 nos, skin and seeds removed, sliced
Unsalted peanuts - 1/3 cup, roasted and skin removed
Onion - 1/4 cup, chopped
Lemon juice - 1 teaspoon
Olive oil - 1 tablespoon

Dry red chilli - 2 nos, crushed
Red chilli powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Coriander leaves - 3 strings, finely chopped
Salt - A small pinch (optional)


1) Mix, oranges slices, peanuts and onion in a mixing bowl or wide plate or whichever is convenient to you.
2) Add lemon juice, olive oil, cumin seeds, dry red chilli, red chilli powder and toss well. Make sure all the ingredients are mixed well.
3) Sprinkle coriander leaves and serve this dish.
