This protein and iron rich salad is a perfect way to wind up your weekend dinner. It is so light on tummy and heavy on flavors. Its an absolute feast to your eyes and soul. I enjoy to make a quick and a healthy salad for my weekend dinners…if I am having my dinner at home. Honestly my party starts from Friday evening and goes on till Sunday evening leaving me tired and little heavy on stomach as I tend to indulge on some yummy food either at a resto bar or at a friends place or at times me cooking it for my friends and hosting the party at home. Well the point here is that I indulge on food over the weekend-YES!! But Sunday evenings are a different story altogether…to avoid the guilt and to go little light on my tummy I usually end up making my own salad bowls with nice and delicious dressing. After all dressing does all the trick to your salads. Try this very simple and humble salad recipe which happened on that one Sunday evening!!
2 medium size boiled beetroots
1 cup boiled green peas
1/2 cup fresh coconut slices
handful of watermelon seeds
handful of mixed dry herbs
For the dressing-
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp vinegar
1/2 tsp minced garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all the salad dressing ingredients in a mason jar and shake well and keep it aside for a while.
Take a bowl and mix all the salad ingredients and keep it aside.
Now pour the dressing in the salad bowl and toss well till its combined properly.
This salad tastes best when it is fresh. I would not recommend to store this salad for the next day. So prepare the exact quantity.
