I totally enjoy cooking and preparing the regular Indian recipes with curries, veggies, beans, paneer etc. But these days I am trying to shed some pounds and so I have started being more conscious of my diet.
I made this vegan, antioxidant-rich, super delicious salad for lunch with a White balsamic vinaigrette dressing and thought of sharing it with you all.
It’s really simple, full of nutrients and super yummy!
I usually eyeball the ingredients for my salads and you can mix these veggies according to your preferences and whatever is available easily at home.
Here are the veggies I used-
I like a little sweetness and some crunch in my salads so I added dried cranberries and roasted pumpkin seeds. Actually, these two are one of my most favorite ingredients and because of their flavors, I eat all the raw veggies easily. To add even more crunch and nutrients- add some crushed roasted walnuts and almonds. I even pop in some strawberries or blueberries if I have them handy as they are a great source of anti-oxidants.
You can even add some goat cheese or grated cheddar cheese if you would like some. I personally like it without the cheese.
The white balsamic vinaigrette dressing I used has hints of citrus and basil which adds a nice twist. Also, add a pinch of black pepper and salt to taste.
Your super healthy and tasty salad is ready!
