Salads should form a part of our daily diet and am happy my daughter is pushing me to add more salads and so sharing a simple favourite salad, which includes fresh vegetables, cooked chick peas and some pomegranate seeds to lend a fruity flavour, the chick peas are great to have bite and so also the crunchy cucumbers.
1/2 cup Boiled cooked chick peas drained well., canned ones can also be used after draining the liquid.
1/2 finely chopped cucumbers
1/2 cup finely chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
1 tbsp finely chopped green chilis
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp white pepper
Pinch of garlic salt
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 tsp roasted powdered cumin powder ( optional )
To make the dressing
Mix lime juice with ,pepper, cumin powder, salt, and toss the chopped vegetables.
Vinaigrette Coleslaw Dressing
3 tbsp Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp water
1.5 tsp white sugar
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp garlic salt
Whisk everything well.Continue whisking until the sugar is completely dissolved. This could take a few minutes.
- Note that this produces a fairly liquidy dressing.
