Vegan Peanut Salad

This healthy vegan salad is rich in protein and can be made in a flash. We used to eat this salad at least twice a week while growing up and we ate them without complaints. It is so addictive and incredibly filling. The addition of fresh lemon juice is refreshing and makes this a favorite salad of mine. Green mango makes this heart healthy salad tangy and crunchy. This salad has the right balance of savory, sweet, hot and sour flavors which makes it a classic Indian salad.
