Roasted Mushroom and Coloured Capsicum
Who doesn't like colourful food? Dig in this unique salad with peppy herbs and tangy lemon juice. Mushrooms and capsicum are both low in calories and fat, and rich in fibre, which makes this salad a good option for weight-watchers. You can even perk up this salad by adding baby corn for its tenderness and zucchini for its juiciness. Top it off with a dressing of your choice and serve fresh!
Kale and apple salad
A must have for those who are particularly health conscious! This salad combines the unique flavour and texture of kale leaves with crunchy strips of apple, shredded cabbage and melon seeds. Serve it immediately upon tossing to enjoy the fresh flavours.
On the surface it sounds like a simple, bland recipe but this salad is cabbage through and through, with dark green speckles of green chillies and coriander here and there. It involves the fusion of cabbage with tangy dressing with black salt, lemon juice and red chili and coriander powder. You can also personalise it by adding your own variants of spices and herbs and enjoy it fresh!
Three bean salad
This salad is a combination of beans in an oregano tomato dressing which makes a quick and tasty salad. The beans need to be soaked overnight and pressure cooked separately till they are soft. The ketchup used in the dressing lends a sweet and concentrated tomato flavour, which blends beautifully in the salad.
Sprouts, Spring Onion and Tomato Salad
Quick, easy and tasty, the best part is that this has as much nutritional appeal too, making it a must-have for all ages. Tangy and crunchy, it is an excellent source of folic acid, iron and protein. The lemony dressing adds to the goodness with an ample dose of vitamin C, especially if it is prepared just before serving.
