Mixed Salad 4 - North Indian Style

Mamta Gupta

A simple but delicious salad, suitable for buffet meals. Use as many of the main ingredients as you have, not necessarily all.

Ingredients

1/4 grated carrots
1/4 cup grated cucumber (or julienne of cucumber)
1/4 cup finely shredded cabbage leaves
1 small red onion thinly sliced
2 tbsp. shredded radish
1 firm tomato, de-seeded and finely chopped
2 tbsp. cauliflower, broken into very small pieces
Optional; 1-2 green chillies finely chopped
A few crisp lettuce leaves, to line the bowl or salad dish
Dressing:
1 tbsp. wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar (both give different flavours)
1/2 tsp. roasted and crushed cumin seeds
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper
Salt to taste

Instructions

1.Place all dressing ingredients in a small jar (I save old jam jars for this purpose), close the lid and shake vigorously. Keep aside.
2.Arrange lettuce leaves at the base of a salad dish or bowl.
3.Place all other salad ingredients in a bowl and mix. Pour the dressing and mix thoroughly.
4.Spoon this mix on top of the lettuce leaves.
5.Serve chilled.

Notes

I often add chopped up apples, pineapple, pear or any other crisp fruits from the fruit bowl, specially if they are beginning to go a little stale.
Other dressings of your choice can be used.
