Peanut Salad / Peanut Pomegranate Salad

This is a refreshing salad with healthy combination of texture and flavour.  The addition of pomegranate in this salad enriches the taste; so don't skip it.  For extra crunchiness, you can add some walnuts / almonds too.

This is a meal by itself; perfect for weight watchers!  I learnt this salad from my friend Lolita; this peanut and pomegranate combination was really awesome; a great hit in my family.
