Fresh, sweet bananas are mixed in with sour lemon juice, spicy chilli, fresh mint and dill leaves, creamy curd and finally crunchy roast peanuts surprising you with flavours and textures in every bite. Use bananas that are firm, yet ripe. This easy-to-make salad is a must-try!

Banana, Cucumber combine very well with curds and dill to give a tasty salad. Crushed peanuts give a good crunch and lemon juice gives it the zest. Have this salad after a workout as bananas can be high in fat.
