Crispy Vegetables And Egg Spring Salad

Crispy Vegetables And Egg Spring Salad - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
We should have our salads everyday so say the doctors and they are right! Salads nourish us and cleanse us from within.5 - 6 portions of fruits and vegetables everyday promotes good digestion, flawless skin and removal of toxins from the body. Sometimes you can add protein ingredients to your salads like chickpeas (safed chane),Cottage Cheese cubes (paneer),Tofu, beansprouts or boiled chicken, eggs or fish for the non vegetarians. In this salad I have used boiled eggs which provide your protein kick and the salad which will take care of your veggie portions! As I mentioned above if you do not have eggs, you can substitute any of the vegetarian options or just omit the protein and continue with the veggies! This salad is a meal in itself and perfect for spring times and summers!

I am a passionate foodie who loves to cook, serve and love to see people relishing my creations. Since the time I was small I used to wonder about the 'how' of things in the kitchen.

Then when I finally ventured as an unprofessional kitchen helper for my late grand-mother (a par excellent cook in her own generation) I was fascinated by the amount of stuff you could do to a simple milk and rice to form a most yummy pudding.

Here I am sharing my recipes with a will to learn from some and educate others as well!
