All natural, no preservatives added, figure friendly, unique and flavorful salads, perfect for summer!
Boston is experiencing a heat wave this summer. I complain all through winter when I wait for warm weather, so I am not complaining now.
This is my kind of weather for summer salads. These unique, figure friendly, all natural salads with homemade (read- no preservatives) salad dressings are perfect for dining on the patio or for any summer parties.
I made the Corn Bhel Salad yesterday evening. Those grilled ears of corn scream summer and are so flavorful. I found the perfect mangoes for this salad at Whole Foods. Adding plenty of veggies makes this such a figure friendly, fiber rich salad. It goes very well with grilled fish.
When life gives you hot, humid days, sprout some legumes! I sprouted mung beans to make this scrumptious salad and will combine it with any fresh summer veggies and fruit I find at the farmer’s market. I am crazy about this dressing for the Sprouted Mung Bean Salad Bowl too.
Have you tried cooked mung dal in your salads? It adds protein, a nutty taste and is easy to digest. I like juxtaposing it with shaved Brussel sprouts and pomegranate arils in this Shaved Brussel Sprouts, Mung Dal and Pomegranate Salad.
Try the Masala Papad Salad Cones for their flavor and textures. The cones can be made ahead of time and stored. They are a hit at parties!
This Citrusy Sunshine Carrot Salad is sure to brighten your day! Inspired by flavors of Morocco, it is an Indian fusion salad that I love.
Isn’t it amazing how different ingredients combine to form unique flavors? I like playing with them to get that unique taste and this lemony honey ginger with turmeric dressing is just another example. Try it in the Red Cabbage and Chick Peas Salad.
These are the uniquely flavorful, healthy and filling salads that I crave for and are satisfying. I hope you try them too.
Have a fabulous weekend all! Enjoy summer!
