Mixed vegetable salad

We think about salad recipes only when we think about diet or weight loss,Right? Winking.Whenever i pack Salad for Sendhil’s lunch box,his colleagues ask him “What Sendhil, diet aa “ ?? Tongue.We all have this mind set.I too had the habit of eating salads only in buffet & banquets and i was making varieties of vegetable & sprouts salad recipes for Sendhil’s lunch only to cut down the intake of rice when he was under diet to overcome some health issues.But nowadays, i have introduced salads in our daily routine just to consume raw vegetables in a healthy & tasty way.I must thank my friend Shalini for urging me to make salad by suggesting some easy & quick recipes.When i browsed for mixed vegetable salad recipes,i found most of them with celery & lettuce leaves.But I couldn’t get these vegetables in small shops nearby my house.So i tried this simple salad recipe with vegetables we can get easily even in petty shops especially in India.I used just 1/2 tsp of olive oil for salad dressing which is completely optional.Other than this,this is a low calorie,basic,simple Indian vegetable salad which u can make in minutes.Do try this healthy,easy salad recipe for ur kids & family.Stay healthy n fit !
