8 quick serving ideas for peanuts

These snacking ideas come courtesy of The World's healthiest foods by George Mateljan.

1) Add chopped Peanuts to a green salad
2) Instead of a Peanut butter and jelly sandwich, try Peanut butter and banana, Peanut butter and honey or Peanut butter, sliced apple or pear and/or raisins.
3) Sprinkle chopped Peanuts over curries.
4) Trail Mix: Combine roasted Peanuts, raisins, thickly grated coconut and dark organic chocolate bits.
5) Peanut Butter and apples: Slice an apple, spread pieces with honey and Peanut butter, and dip in chopped Peanuts.

6) Spicy Peanut Butter: In a small bowl, mix 2 TBS Peanut Butter with 1 1/2 tsp of tamari (soy sauce) and hot sauce to taste.
7) Asian Salad: Combine sliced green cabbage, grated ginger, Serrano chiles and Peanuts. Toss with equal parts tamari (soy sauce) and rice vinegar and a sprinkle of sesame oil.
8) Celery and Peanut Butter: Fill a celery rib with Peanut Butter for a great lunch-bag addition or an afternoon snack.
