My first Salad recipe. Why I chose this name, you get all the goodness in one big bowl of this salad. I have used all green veggies, loaded with iron, fibre, nutrition, vitamins and minerals. I made this salad for lunch and I was so so tempted to post this recipe today. The moment I ate this salad, I felt very rejuvenated and fresh. Very filling and at the same time light on the stomach. Use fresh veggies for best results. Do not over cook the broccoli, beans and the green peas. A little crunch adds that extra taste. Do try and enjoy.

Steamed Broccoli florets –  3 cups

Steamed Beans ( chopped to slightly long pieces ) – 1 cup

Steamed green peas – 1 cup

Method

Take a big salad bowl. Mix in the steamed broccoli florets, beans and the green peas. Mix in the dressing. Toss well. Garnish ( 1 )  and toss again. Garnish ( 2 ). Serve at once.

Chef’s Tips

1) Just before serving the salad mix in the dressing and the garnishes. Toss and serve. Do not mix the dressing earlier, the salad will become soggy.

2) While steaming the veggies try to retain the colour.

3) If garlic powder is not available, don’ t  worry. Use fresh garlic flakes  ( use 1 flake of garlic ) just pound them and add it to the dressing  ingredients.
