Special Indian Salad

I love to have some salad with most of my meals, i'm sure you do too. I have a friend who has been kind enough to share one of his own salad recipes with me and you!

This salad, like all other salads, is very good for your health. Some of the ingredients here will do you a lot of good.

These are quick healthy recipes, and by thesei also mean my mango lassi recipe, indian onion salad/chutney recipe, and indian mint sauce/raitha recipe as well. (You will find the links below).

This is the simplest Indian salad you will ever make, but you need the right ingredients.

Don't worry, they are simple ingredients! This will serve two people.

This is the list of items you will need -

1 red onion (or any you prefer)

1 tablespoon of mustard seeds

1/2 a lettuce

1 medium sized tomato

1/2 a cucumber

small handful of fresh corriander

1 carrot

salt (to your taste)

You may also add if you wish -

1/2 a beetroot

green chillies

peppers (green/red/yellow)

olive oil

fresh lemon

honey (yes honey! It will make it more exciting in your mouth)

Anything else you want.

The Process

First and the most important thing to do to make the salad taste amazing is you have to very lightly fry the mustard seeds until they are brown. After you have done that, crush them to get the taste out. If you do not crush them, when you eat the salad the mustard seeds will taste too strong.

Chop all of the above ingredients as finely as possible and place them in a big bowl.

Leave the mustard and corriander to place on top of the salad last.

Mix all of the chopped items in the bowl, and add a small amount of salt, or as much or less as you like. (Don't forget, too much salt is bad for you, just enough will enhance the taste of the salad).

After you have mixed the salad, you have completed the process, taste it to see if you need to add anything else. (See? I told you it was very simple!)

You can add honey which will make the salad even more appealing to anyone of any age, but you have to leave out, or add just a tiny smidgen of salt.

Congratulations! You have been successful in making your own Special Indian Salad!
