recipe

When preparing meals at home, cooks know that it helps to have a few simple, easily prepared dishes in their culinary repertoire. These are dishes that don’t require too much planning and utilize certain staples that are present in everyone’s pantry. Such is the case with this recipe for “Crunchy Cucumber Salad with Crushed Peanuts” from Ruta Kahate’s “5 Spices, 50 Dishes” (Chronicle Books). Most of the ingredients for this flavorful salad are likely already in your kitchen, and it won’t be long after you begin preparing the recipe that you’ll be sitting down and enjoying a meal with family and friends.
