Garden Salad

Hi Friends,
               After having too many sweets on Diwali, me and my husband decided to have less calorie intake in our meal. So now a days I am making soups and salads more often than our full course meal.

I tried Garden Salad, adding bread croutons in it makes it crunchy and yummy ... So sharing my version of Garden Salad with you all :)

Ingredients:
1 bunch of lettuce (washed and torn roughly into pieces)
2 large tomatoes (sliced)
1 red onion (sliced)
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
1/4 cup of boiled corn kernels
Few olives (optional)
Handful of bread croutons
For Dressing:
2 tbsp of olive oil
2 cloves of garlic (mashed)
1 tbsp vinegar or juice of 1 lemon
A pinch of pepper powder
Salt according to taste


Method:
  • Put all the veggies in the large salad bowl.


  • To make dressing, put all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk it nicely.
  • Pour on the veggies. Toss well.
  • Garnish with bread croutons. 
  • Serve immediately.
