Bellpeppers & Boiled Peanut Salad

I make salads almost twice or thrice in a week for our dinner.Obviously i do many varieties of salads with many fresh veggies,cooked legumes,nuts and serve them with different dressings.When i choosed peanuts as this week's star ingredient for blogging marathon,i was quite breaking my head for making a simple,quick and easy salad as Valli suggested to make 7 different dishes with salad and soup as one among those dishes with the main ingredient we choosed for a week.Two days back my H came home with a packet of red and green bellpeppers asking me to prepare a quick salad.

Immediately i prepared this simple salad with red and green bellpeppers along with boiled peanuts,tomatoes and served with hung curd,mayonnaise,pepper powder and salt with herbs . While serving,i simply served this salad topped with crushed tortilla chips,thanks to Nithya of 4th Sense Cooking for sharing her trick to feed the kids easily the salads topped with chips.For my surprise,even my lil one who never liked peanuts enjoyed having this colourful,delicious and healthy salad.Try adding boiled peanuts next time while preparing salads friends, am sure you guys will definitely love this.Check out the other marathoners running blogging marathon here.
