Print Friendly and PDF

salad recipe for kids

Yesterday we went to Raksha’s friend birthday party.I’ll post that party menu recipes this weekend.I tasted this salad there.It was a very simple recipe but very tasty.Raksha doesn’t like to eat pomegranate but she loves sweet corn very much.As that salad had more sweet corn,she had it without complaining anything Smile.It was so colourfully done to attract the kids.All the kids liked it very much.Not only kids,we too liked it a lot.It tasted very similar to Karnataka kosambari.Today i prepared the same at home and i have planned to give her a bowl of salad after she comes from the school.We too had it along with our lunch.Friends,do try this colourful salad and give it to your kids.This can be prepared well in advance.U can even pack for their lunch box along with some variety rice.It would be healthy and filling too :)

Easy salad recipe

Easy salad recipe Easy salad recipe for kids.Even ur kids can make it for themselves :)
Cuisine: Indian Category: Salad Yields: Serves 2
Prep Time: 10 Minutes Cook Time: 2 Minutes Total Time: 12 Minutes

1 cup - 200ml
For mixing
  • Pomegranate - 1/4 cup
  • Sweet corn kernels - 1/3-1/2 cup
  • Grated coconut – 1-2 tbsp
  • Cucumber - 1 tbsp (Optional)
  • Coriander leaves – 2tsp
  • Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp (optional)
  • Salt - as needed
  • Lemon juice - few drops (optional)

  • Pressure cook the sweet corn and remove the kernels (Click here to see the easy removal of kernels).Finely chop the cucumber,coriander leaves.Grate the coconut using a peeler so that it looks like long strands as u see in the picture.  
  • In a wide bowl,add all the ingredients.Mix well,add salt and lemon juice if desired.

  • If u are planning to try this for parties, cook the corn and remove the kernels,take out the pomegranate seeds and chop the cucumber on the previous day itself.Refrigerate everything separately in an air tight box.On the day of party,just two hours before,take everything out of the fridge and mix well, add salt and freshly grated coconut.Nowadays we can store the grated coconut in a ziplock bag and freeze it.Bring it to room temperature and mix it with the salad.Add lime juice if desired and set aside.By the time u serve, it would be good to taste.
  • For variations,u can also add grated carrots.Adding grated coconut gives a nice taste. Skip if ur kid don’t like it.
  • Do not add pepper powder if u make for kids.
  • Adding lemon juice is completely optional.I din’t use it. 
  • U can also add a tsp of olive oil to make it more healthy.
