The Purple Delight

Salads are some of the easiest whip-ups that you can make in the kitchen. It requires a good mix of veggies, salt and pepper and involves just that little bit of creativity to mix up all the ingredients together.This is the first of many such small whip-ups that I'm going to share with you. I call this "The Purple Delight"

Purple Delight
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1 Carrot
  • 1 Green Capsicum
  • 1 Tomato
  • A small piece of celery
  • 4 – 5 Iceberg Lettuce / Romaine leaves
  • Half a Purple Cabbage
  • Feta Cheese

For Dressing:
  • 3 tsp olive oil
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • Salt and pepper as required

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Serves : 2 – 3 people

  1. First, we need to prepare the dressing for the salad.
  2. Mix the dressing ingredients in a bowl and keep aside.
  3. Next, chop all the vegetables into cubes except the lettuce and cabbage.
  4. Cut the lettuce and cabbage into strips. Note - Rinse the cabbage well in water and drain.
  5. Take a big bowl, preferably a salad bowl and add the cut vegetables and the dressing (except the tomato) and mix well.
  6. Add the Tomato and top it up with cubes of Feta cheese and serve immediately.
The variations are many and you can also crank it up by tossing in a few olives as well. Whatever the meal may be, a salad can work wonders when combined with the main course.
