GARDEN FRESH NO CHEESE SALAD

Making Salad is a  super convenient way to make a simple yet healthy meal. I would say its the best way to shed extra pounds by simply adding it as a part of your daily diet. There are a lots of  Salad eating outlets across the globe and according to me these are very popular and densely populated by health freaks. You can make a wonderfully tasting salad in no time, without much mess and minimum cooking and yet not compromising on your health. The surprising element in a salad is that the indigestible fibre is the healthiest component that fights to keep your cholesterol and glucose low and ease out your bowels. I decided to have salad for dinner a couple of days back but had no plans of what to make. I had finished my vegetable shopping the previous day so pulled my vegie crisper to check my stock and in a jiffy decided what to do. I said to myself i am not adding any cheese to it.That was the only vow i took before the act. Practically you can add anything to your salad...... anything you desire but healthy be it fruits,vegetables, beans, mayonnaise, pasta or cheese. As Einstein rightly quoted "Imagination is more important than knowledge", all you need to be is creative and  the knowledge to add the right ones into your salad. Then your Salad works.



What I did to make my Salad work....  

Preparation time : Less than 10 minutes 

Onion................................................. 1 big
Tomato..............................................  1 ripe and big
Cucumber..........................................  1 cup cubed
Sweet Corn........................................  a handful
Garden Fresh Peas.............................  a handful
Apple ( Red Delicious).......................  1/2 an apple ( give away the other half to your kids)
Italian Herbs......................................   to taste
Tomato Ketchup...............................   1 tsp
Apple Cider Vinegar.........................    1/2 a tsp
Salt...................................................    to taste

Saladworks!!!

Method
  • Cut all the vegetables into cubes and  put it in an easy mixing bowl. Microwave the corn and peas until soft and add it to the vegetable mixture. Chop the apple in the end to prevent browning. Add salt to it. Toss or mix well.

  • Sprinkle the Italian herb into the mixture and mix well for a minute.



  • Add a teaspoon of Tomato ketchup and half a teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar and mix one more time.

  • Transfer it into a serving bowl and enjoy. 



  • This is a real cool and crunchy salad. I decided to add the Apple Cider Vinegar only in the last minute. It tasted great.
Notes
  • As i said you can innovate add anything more that you desire to this salad.
  • I recommend olives and some pasta sauce. You can also add grated cheese if you like. 
  • Apple Cider Vinegar has a strong odour.  Some may not like it. Just use a small quantity if you are a first timer.
