Healthy Potato and Spinach Salad

This is a very nutritious and refreshing salad which will surely be enjoyed by kids....mine love it so much that they are ready to eat this given anytime of the day.  I usually have this salad ready for them as an after school snack.  It has all the goodness of the proteins and vitamins and keeps them satisfied for some time:)


 
2 handfuls spinach(salad spinach which come in packages)
3 medium size potatoes boiled, peeled and cut into big cubes
2 small tomatoes
3 inch cucumber piece
1/4 of a small onion
1/2 cup of boiled channa
handful of toasted peanuts(optional)

Dressing:
3 tbsp olive oil
salt, lemon juice and pepper to taste

Chop  the spinach coarsely and cut the tomatoes in half and each half into eighths.  Peel and cube the cucumber as well.  Cut the onions into 1 inch length slices.  Combine all these along with the chana and toasted peanuts.

Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk them together.  Add this to the salad ingredients and toss everything well till it all combines thoroughly. Enjoy!!
