Easy Salad Recipes - Healthy & Super Tasty

Spread the love

Who said salads are just grassy, boring food? They can be the yummiest snack or meal! Check these easy salad recipes that you can prepare at home in minutes!

Bread and rice are irresistible, I know. And salads are supposed to be had with meals – they can’t BE meals, right? 

Yeah, right, but here’s a tried and tested salad recipe that we’ve been having regularly for a few months now. No, it’s not a weekly punishment on a diet-day. It’s really a meal or a snack that my friends and I look forward to eating whenever possible. Within minutes, the entire salad bowl is usually wiped clean (I’ll leave the finger-licking details out!).

In this blog post, I’ll be sharing all the ingredients for the salad, the preferred cutting/chopping styles, and also an easy salad dressing recipe that will tantalize your taste buds and please your digestive system!

Servings: 2

Salad Ingredients

  • Iceberg lettuce (300g)
  • Cucumber: 2 large/medium pieces, cut
  • Tomatoes: 2, diced
  • Green Peppers/Capsicum: 1 large/medium piece or 2 small pieces, julienned

Other Optional Salad Ingredients (they taste amazing, by the way!)

  • Olives: ½ cup, sliced
  • Grapes: 50-100 gm, sliced
  • ½ Apple sliced
  • Feta cheese: 50 gm
  • Grilled chicken strips: 100 gm

Salad Dressing Ingredients

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: 50 ml
  • Lemon Juice/Balsamic Vinegar/Regular Vinegar: 30 ml
  • Garlic: 4 slices, chopped
  • Oregano/Pizza Seasoning: 2-3 sachets
  • Honey/Honey Mustard: 20 ml

Sourcing the Ingredients 

Wondering where you can get all these ingredients at a go? Order these any time till midnight on Milkbasket, get it next morning by 7 AM sharp. 

I personally make sure that we use responsibly-sourced, fresh, quality checked ingredients procured from a reliable outlet or service. My personal favorite, of course, is Milkbasket as I can choose from a wide variety of local and exotic fruits & vegetables, processed cheese, cooking essentials and groceries, etc.

Steps to Prepare the easy salad

  • Mix all the salad dressing ingredients in a cup and stir it fully.
  • Take all the chopped, diced and julienned vegetables and fruits and put them in a bowl
  • Top the salad ingredients with the dressing mix. Remember, don’t pour all of it. Pour some of the dressing, mix it well, and taste it first to see if you need to add more dressing!
  • Mix the salad properly with the help of a serving spoon.
  • Pick up the forks and enjoy the jokes that your salad keeps making. 😀

Here’s another small piece of advice for those who have more ingredients at home and love to make ‘Instagram-worthy’ dishes!

Psstt… you can add seeds & nuts such as chopped walnuts, shaved almonds, sesame seeds, roasted flax seeds, roasted pumpkin seeds, dried berries, etc. to this easy salad recipe
