Spinach and Peanut Salad

BM # 62
Week :4 , Day: 2
Theme: Salads

Continuing with salads ,as my theme for this week I have a very healthy, quick and delicious crunchy salad for Day 2.

This is a salad that has been introduced in our house by my daughter in law. I have never been very fond of spinach so she finds ways and means to incorporate these greens in my diet. The salad actually tastes very good and is nutritious too, with the goodness of spinach and the crunch and protein from peanuts ,we simply love  it.

Spinach and Peanut Salad

2 cups spinach
1/4 cup onions, finely chopped
1/4 cup roasted peanuts, coarsely ground
Salt to taste
Lemon juice

1 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds

Wash and chop the spinach very finely.
Chop the onions finely.
Roast the peanuts and coarsely grind them.
Mix all these ingredients and add very little salt .
Drizzle lemon juice.
Temper with mustard seeds and mix once again.
