Fruit-n-Veg Salad

It was last afternoon that I decided against cooking lunch for myself, and had this delicious Veg -n- Fruit Salad  filled with goodness and health. As with a salad, most of the ingredients are not measured but decided more by availability and one's palate ! Slightly chilled veggies and fruits works best, unless its freezing out there!
Ingredients: (Single serve)

  • Cabbage - loosely shredded - 1 cup
  • Tomatoes roughly chopped - 1 no.
  • Onions (ok, the prices have dropped) !  - chopped - 1 no (optional)
  • Sweet corn - 1 cup (I love this, so shredded it right off the cob)
  • Cucumber - roughly diced - 1/2 cup
  • Carrots - diced lengthwise - 1/4 cup
  • Watermelon - roughly diced - 1/2 cup
  • Lime juice - 1 tbsp (or more if you prefer)
  • Black salt - 1/2 tsp
  • Rosemary and oregano - a pinch each (Optional)
  • Freshly ground pepper - 1/2 tsp
  • chopped fresh coriander / cilantro & mint leaves - 1 tsp each
  1. Roughly chop all the veggies and fruit.
  2. Mix well - do not toss more than twice or thrice.  You may add seasonal fruits / veg as preferred. Citrus fruits work especially well.
  3. Add lime juice and salt. Now add Rosemary, Oregano and Pepper.
  4. Garnish with Coriander and Mint leaves.
  5. Transfer to a large bowl ...
Sit back, relax and enjoy the crunchy Salad !
