Are salads boring???
There was a time I could not have salads. Boringgg...........Boringgg.....This kept going on in my mind.
Always thought them to be boring.
Now I know, salad need not be boring. It can be yummy too.Whether its the juicy summer mango salsa or Vietnamese salad. Mexican guacamole or avocado dip salad.Go with grains salad for a full meal be it Crunchy quinoa or black barley salad. if you love your chana, you will love your Chickpeas with dijon mustard.
Why this salad rocks?
Colorful and fresh recipe can help you finish your meal at your desk. Reds yellows and greens make it so vibrant. No need to skip lunch. Also helps you take care of your waistline. This is the way to go.
Salads help you detox and also add crunch to your meal. If you cannot have it as it is. However, adding feta cheese to normal green salad gives it a great texture. If you do not get feta, add some cottage cheese, lemon juice, along with salt and pepper. It may not be an exact Greek salad but still close enough. Cucumbers give you the freshness, tomatoes the acidity, peppers the crunch. Olives the saltiness and total fun food for kids full of umami.
