Green Gram Sprout - Red Raddish Salad - with Homemade Salad Dressing



Eating Fresh vegetables and Fruits as salads everday  make you fit and healthier  . When i was small i used to think salad means just combination of Onions, Tomato's , Lettuce ,Pine Apples and Cucumbers .  Then i realized , Salads could be made with number of Vegetables , Fruits , Meat , and Cheese with Home made dressing or store brought one .

 

Salads are not only easy to make , but has number of heatlh benifits.

Eating more fruits and vegetables may lower the risk for
  • Type 2 Diabatese 
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Obesity
  • Consuming
  • Osteoporosis      and
  • Kidney Stones

                           


Plating the salad is more important too . I am a person who is not fond of salads , But if it is visually looking good i dont mind trying  it. :P . I make a point that i eat salads atleast a week . I make it with the fresh vegetables i like.

  • Cucumbers.
  • Tomatoes.
  • Green Gram Sprouts.
  • Small Red Raddish and its leaf
  • Green Capcicums.
  • Sprouted Fenugreek Leaves.
  • Bottle gourd.


  • Homemade Salad Dressing :    ( Put it in the mixer and grind )

  • Olive Oil.
  • Lime Juice.
  • Green Chilli / Pepper Corns      and
  • Salt    

  • Instructions:

    1. Wash the Vegetables and cut it according to you want.
    2. Deseed the Bottle Gourd and cut it lengthy really thin and squeeze out the water out of it .
    3. The specialty of the salad is I used home grown Fenugreek Leaves .
    4. Blend the ingredients which is under Homemade Salad Dressing .
    5. Mix the Salad Dressing with the Salad only when you are ready to serve.
