Salad, Sizzling Tastebuds

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 !
