Salads and salad dressings













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.


Ingredients:



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.
