I didn’t make any step wise pictures as i was very easy to make and no cooking is involved.

METHOD:

  • Cube the pineapple and cucumber.( i used the Japanese cucumber)
  • If using the Indian cucumber, scoop out the seeds if you don’t like and peel off the skin too.
  • In a wide bowl, combine the pineapple, cucumber and add the red chilli flakes.
  • Crush the roasted peanuts in a mixer coarsely and add to the salad.
  • Mix well. since the peanuts i used the salted roasted peanuts i didn’t add salt.
  • Serve immediately.  If serving later, add the peanuts before serving.
