Okay, to let you know, please don’t judge this salad by its name. This one was so quick and easy and basic that I had to name it as my ‘Elementary Salad’ , after all its the taste that matters in the end right? 🙂
There was a time when salad to me meant a plate that was adorned with circular disc like cucumbers, onions and tomatoes garnished with lemon juice, a bit of the most basic seasoning and arrive at the table as mandate part of our meals.
But as the evolution has taken its course, so has the salad. Honestly the grocery aisles confuse me like I could never explain. There is ton of salad dressing varieties, such attractive packaging, that time slips like faster than sand and if your vegan or say newly vegan.;) you know how it takes time to identify the ‘our’ things.
Anyways, coming back to the salad, it is indeed a refreshing bowl to me and to everyone. We may not have all the fancy items stocked up all the time but who cares when you are good at making fixes. 🙂 Me in particular, is a person who seldom likes to put hours in the kitchen, so the faster the better for me.
I really do not have a very fancy list of the stuffs that I have put into this bowl, so please pardon me on that but being a vegan fanatic, I would love to share my modesty. 🙂
The Things in The Bowl
- Lots of chopped lettuce
- Baby carrots
- Cucumbers Diced
- Tomatoes Chopped
- Steamed Brocolli Florets
- Some lime juice
- and the highlight of the day- Veggie Hot Dogs ( Microwaved for 30 sec, chopped and tossed in a skillet. They are really good. Please take my word for this one.
- I used a Thai mayo here, with peanut and soy base. You can pick what ever you like though.
- And for the final touch garnish it with some Sprouts. Tadaaa!
So nutrition quotient? I guess we have matched it up all right from the iron to the calcium and the minerals and not to forget the colorful bowl of greens is certainly tempting. 🙂
I have been literally obsessed looking up for, drooling and saving all those amazing vegan recipes that are flooded over the internet. Kudos to all the wonderful people making them and posting them for similar friends like me and helping us look ahead to peaceful, healthier and colorful ‘tomorrow’.
