Fresh Summer Salad with Sprouts

Husband was travelling last week. So I took the chance to eat what I want - read don't do any cooking. But does that mean, it has to be unhealthy week? Guess not. My little one made it easy for me as he decided all he wanted to eat this week was Rasam Sadam (rice) and Vendakka (Okra) or Potato curry.  His meal was ready in 15 minutes every day :-)

We don't eat raw vegetables as much as we should. This colourful and protein filled salad is a sure winner.

This can be served as a salad meal on its own as the sprouts and chickpeas make it quite filling. Other options to use it

  • As a salad along with a subzi for rice/roti
  • As a wrap - use a tortilla wrap or pita wrap. You can also melt add some cheese and heat it up for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese
  • As a sandwich filling

Cucumber 1/2 cup chopped
Carrots 1/2 cups grated
Tomato 1/2 finely chopped
Moong Sprouts 1/2 cup (Use this raw or just steam in microwave for 2 minutes)
Chick Peas cooked 1/2 cup (Sprout this as well if you can)
Coriander Leaves to garnish
Lemon/Lime Juice 2 tsp
Salt and chilli powder or pepper powder to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Prep the vegetables and sprouts as mentioned above.

2. Mix all the ingredients to make the salad.
