Salad with simple dressing

Before sharing the recipe with you, I have a small story to share. Few years back, that was my first visit to a restaurant in USA with my hubby, it was a Mexican restaurant. We were very formally greeted and seated as we entered the restaurant by a nice lady and menu cards were handed. I being new to the Mexican food, asked my hubby to suggest any vegetarian dish that I could enjoy. There were only few options in the menu which include salad, some cheese burritos and vegetable fajita. So he ordered salad for appetizers and soon it arrived on to the table. I never had lettuce or any raw food before in India. The only thing that came on to my mind was a GOAT! yup, because my brother used to say that I eat leafy vegetables like a goat, but I never agreed because I used to say that goats eat raw leaf not me, but now what am I doing! I was glad that my brother was not around. I soon laughed out loud looking at a salad and my hubby had a question mark on his face about why am I laughing and I soon explained him the same. Even I used to feel creepy when I saw people eating raw vegetables, and later I closed my eyes prayed to god and had a first bite of it, immediately I had to open my eyes and say wow! I loved it. From then salad became one of my favorite food. Today I am sharing with you the simple salad recipe with simple dressing.



Ingredients
Romaine lettuce/iceberg lettuce-1 head
Baby carrots or julienned carrot-1/2cup
Ripe pitted olives chopped-1/4cup (or to taste, I love olives so I put more)
Squash/cucumber slices-1/2cup
cherry tomatoes washed and halved -10 in number

For Dressing
Olive oil-3tbsp
Apple cider vinegar/white vinegar-2tbsp
salt to taste
sugar-pinch
Lemon juice-1/2tbsp

Method
Wash and chop lettuce and add all other ingredients and mix well. Mix all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and add it on top of the salad before serving. You will love it. Refrigerate the salad before serving. You can also add avocado if you like.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like it!

How to make delicious soft bread buns with self rising flour?

We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them. I had experimented with different kinds of recipes and came out with my own recipe which is perfect for making soft buns. These buns are perfect for making sandwich/tea time snack.

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Ingredients:
Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
