Carrot Cucumber Salad

Its a very simple salad which brings back my childhood memories. Since summer has started in India, was recollecting all those golden days, summer vacation we had as kid. Mom used to make this salad. She adds some green chillies, some chopped red onions and a bunch of cilantro. But I didn't add them, as I wanted my daughter to eat salad. (she is not a big fan of chilies or raw onions)I also added some peanuts (her favorite). My hubby really liked it  and his question was why I didn't make this all for him all these years.?? :)
A refreshing light salad with just 4 ingredients. 

Carrots, 2 nos.
Cucumber, 1 no.
Peanuts,  a handful
Lemon, half
salt to taste

  1. Grate the carrots.

  5. Mix them together and salt to taste.
Ready to serve.
