The vegetable dressing.
I have been away for a month now. Where was I? What was I doing? I again had entered into a hibernating mode. Hibernating mode part 2. But I never stopped thinking about food and making new recipes, it’s just that I kept procrastinating. A very deadly disease that just shuts your mind for a time that seems like eternity. Hope this disease never happens to you. 🙂
Having tried a lot of recipes that required different kinds of spices and methods, I now decided to try something simpler and quicker. It’s always said that raw vegetables are more beneficial to our body. Since they are eaten in the raw form, they retain their nutritive value. In short the proteins, carbohydrates and minerals find their way straight into the stomach, are absorbed and help build our body. So here’s, a Salad dish. Salads are made up of small pieces of raw vegetables (they can be grated, sliced or chopped). Salads are usually eaten before the main course is served. In this dish, the taste of fresh mint and lemon add a tangy flavor. The tomatoes and capsicum can be eaten in their sliced form. As the flavor and smell of one vegetable mixes with the other (since it’s kept one on another) it gives you the tastes of both the veggies, when placed on your tongue. When I ate a slice of tomato, I tasted the flavor of capsicum and lemon which were yum!
