Sweet bananas and crunchy cucumbers are a very compatible twosome when prepared just right, with a texture boost from peanuts and coconut and a flavour boost from green chillies and lemon juice, this Indian cucumber banana peanuts salad is just a perfect pick for any meal.

Bananas are a wealth of potassium and fiber. Heart patients can benefit from these nutrients. However, they being a good source of carbs, we do not recommend this banana cucumber salad solely for diabetics.

On the other hand, coconut and peanuts are a source of healthy fats. They add satiety along with banana. And lemon juice boosts our immunity with the vitamin C it lends. For weight watchers, we recommend only a small portion size of this healthy banana cucumber coconut salad occasionally. They do have fibre, but they abound in carbs too. So moderation is the key here!

Tips for banana cucumber salad. 1. Cover with a cling wrap and chill for a maximum of 30 minutes or bananas will turn black. Don't add salt, sugar and lemon juice when putting in the fridge. 2. If serving salad to children, don't add green chillies.

It is sweet and spicy in taste. The sweetness of the banana is enough in enough to make the salad sweet. Along with bananas, green chillies gives a slight spicy flavour to it.

I could never imagine a salad with bananas, cucumber and peanuts but when I tried it, it was really nice...the crunchiness of cucumber and peanuts and the sweetness of bananas made this salad a super hit...
