TIPS TO JAZZ UP YOUR SALAD
Go beyond lettuce: Usually, when you think of preparing a salad, the first thing you reach for is lettuce leaves. But this time, think ahead of that and include roasted pumpkin, brussels sprouts, moong, boiled sweet potato and roasted paneer. You can also add pickled veggies to it.
Chop herbs into it: Instead of basic seasonings try sprinkling herbs such as basil and rosemary into the bowl, which can add new flavour to it.
Make it colourful: Prepare your salad with chickpea, lettuce leaves and boiled rajma beans and add purple cabbage, red cherry tomatoes and yellow peppers to it, too. You’ll end up with a healthier salad this way.
Add some crunch to it: Fresh salads are definitely delicious on their own, but give them a taste upgrade on their own by adding crunchy croutons, pumpkin seeds and nuts to it. Just chop a handful of nuts and use that as a topping.
Make it fruity: Who says a salad has to be just veggie? For a sweet-tangy twist introduce fruit into it. You can add whatever you have at home – watermelon chunks, peeled orange slices, apple and cut mango cubes. Chop some mint over it and you’re set!
