GARDEN SALAD




Nothing better than a cool salad in Summer. Garden salad is a colourful one with veggies of different colours.. green, yellow & red capsicums / bell peppers... orange carrots ... red tomatoes... cool cucumbers in white colour  etc. etc. with a flavourful mustard-garlic dressing.

Red, yellow, green capsicums/bell peppers ... 1 cup
Cucumber ............ 1
Carrot ............... 1
Tomato ............. 1 ( you can use cherry tomatoes too )
Lettuce ............. 1 cup

For the Dressing:
Mustard seeds .......... 1 tsp.
Garlic ........... 3-4 flakes
Vinegar or lime juice .... 1 tbsp.
Salt .................. to taste
Sugar ............... 1/8 tsp.
Black pepper ..... 1/2 tsp.
Basil .................. few leaves.
Olive oil / salad oil .... 1 tbsp.

Method:
1. Cut all the vegetables into the desired shapes / sizes.

2. Break the lettuce leaves and immerse them in ice cold water until we are ready to use. This keeps the lettuce crisp and crunchy.

3. In a pestle and mortar, crush the garlic, basil and mustard seeds. Add the vinegar, sugar and salt. Mix well and blend the oil into the mix.
4. Mix the dressing to the salad just before serving. Serve chilled.
