Salad is mixture of cooked/uncooked mixed veggies, fruits & Dressing. Im new to this salad world!! Though we consume raita Quiet often and Call it as Indian Salad But lets take a look from Google Maharaj what salad originally means and how many of us know this????
Definition: A dish of raw leafy green vegetables, often tossed with pieces of other raw or cooked vegetables, fruit, cheese, or other ingredients and served with a dressing.
Word History: Salt was and is such an important ingredient in salad dressings that the very word salad is based on the Latin word for "salt."
What I can define Salad as??? A mixture of varieties Which is nutritious!! Filling!! and yess not to forget should also be lipsmacking!!
Alrite I go With my statement and I have not added any cheese or mayonnaise for the salad dressing. As I said im new to this salad world my previous post on salad was also based on cabbage but it was tempered so I was rather confused to name it a salad or not!!
Coming back to This Recipe I Kept thinking alot!! I had cabbage as my base and what else to be added hmmmmmm after lots of thinking finally got an outline to what I wanted to make
Here It goes!!!
Cabbage Roughly chopped - 1/2 of large cabbage ( put in boiling water and let it rest there for 1 or 2 mins you feel it getting tender, strain the water)
Apple- 1/2 to 1 chopped roughly
Sweet corn 1/4th cup (boiled)
Cucumber 1 large de seeded and chopped roughly
Salt - According to taste
Sugar - 1/4th tsp aprox
Pepper Powder - As per desired
Fresh Thick Curd - 1/4th cup
Take a large Mixing Bowl. Add in all ingredients and give a gud mix, Check For Taste
You should know your taste much better :) Isnt it??? Adjust Salt, Sugar, pepper accordingly. If anywhere you feel you should add more curd go ahead. But make sure Dont make It like a Raita :P We just need a good coating around the veggies and fruit to give it extra taste from dressing, Which can evenly distribute The Seasonings!!!
Here My Colorful Salad Plate Is Ready!!! What about yours????
Crunchy, Munchy, Fruity, Sweet Salty Peppery. All ingredients accommodated well with each other.
Felt Satisfied :D It was liked by all
