Tossed Salad with Sweet LimePosted in : Accompaniments, Bachelor Recipes, Healthy food, Kid Friendly, Lowfat, Salad, Salad, Sweet Lime on by : admin Tags: Blogging Marathon, Cabbage, Capsicum, garlic, lettuce, Lime, Salad, Tomatoes, Tossed Salad with Sweet Lime
Stuck with some chopped cabbage that I needed to finish off and with something new that daughter demanded I came up with this simple but very tasty salad.
I have never before used sweet lime in my salad but after this once I will never stop using it in my salads.
There is no such thing as ingredients or any proportion. Just toss in any fresh veggie and mix well.
Here I have used
2 cups cabbage chopped
1 red capsicum
1 yellow capsicum
5-6 cherry tomatoes
Some lettuce leaves, torn in bite sized pieces
6 sweet lime segments peeled and de seeded
1 tsp onion seeds or kalonji
For the salad dressing
1 clove garlic crushed
1 tsp olive oil
½ tsp pepper powder
¼ tsp Lime juice
1. In a bowl crush the garlic and mix all the ingredients for the dressing. Refrigerate it for at least ½ an hour.
2. Mix all the ingredients for salad in a big bowl or box with a lid and keep Refrigerate.
3. Just before serving add the dressing. Close the lid of the box and give it to the kid to shake. (Keeps her occupied and eats the salad as she has made it). 😉
