One can make a tasty salad by combining fruits like melon, orange,apples and grapes with vegetables like tomatoes , cucumber, lettuce,turnips,carrots and also add a handful of olives , walnuts and almonds . Finally add a dressing made by combining olive oil,lime juice salt pepper and chopped coriander and mint leaves - just Yummy ! Do you have some interesting salad recipe ideas to share ?

Hi Kiran! The combination of ingredients in your salad appear very tempting. Would love to have such a kind of Salad with plenty of fruits and raw vegetables sans walnut or almonds. I think if you are gonna serve me this kind of Salad, if will be as good as well cooked dish. Have a great day!

I am the same deepak, cannot resist nuts. Once some friends gave 1 lb pack each of Walnuts and Pistas and I just could not stop eating until it was over lol, so, now I am careful about buying nuts, esp in large quantities

Hi Kiran! I love to make salad and have it too but I do not like to mix fruits and vegetables. I make mixed fruit salad [ diced cubes of apple, orange, banana,grape,dates,cashew, almond,kismis, with a dash of lemon, a pinch of salt and sugar . I like mixing guava, apple, banana with Everest chat masala too or just chillipowder/pepper and salt .I make vegetable salad separately.[ the usual one of mixed grated carrot,diced cucumber,tomato,onion,capsicum,onion, lime and salt. I chop them beautifully and this adds taste and appeal to the salad.
