Indian Vegetarian Salad Recipes, Vegetable Salads

 Indian Salad Recipes, Vegetable Salad Recipes, Vegetarian Salads. Salads are as close to nature as our food can get! Made of fresh, fibrous and nutritious ingredients tossed with flavoursome dressings, salads are not only healthy but tasty too. Ingredients like fruits, sprouts and veggies come in varied flavours and textures, and when they come together in intelligent combos they kindle one’s appetite and give an instant sense of wellness.
 

Low Cal Salads

Low-calorie salads are eaten by many on a regular basis as they provide abundant nutrition without the risk of gaining weight. Being rich in fibre, salads keep you full for a long time and avoid snack sprees. Plus, the fibre also helps lose weight if the rest of the person’s diet is also conducive to it.

Although most vegetable salads contain a bundle of fruits and veggies, what often compromises the calorie count is the dressing, if made with oil, cream, and other such rich ingredients. So, when making low-cal salads, it is important to pay attention to every ingredient. You must go for low-cal curd, low-cal paneer, low-cal dressings, etc. In this Fruit and Veg Salad, for example, we have used low-calorie Thousand Island dressing instead of a fat-loaded dressing made of mayonnaise.

It is also wise to pick fruits and veggies that are low on the calorie count, such as carrot, bell peppers, orange, apple etc.

2. Zucchini, Bell Pepper and Sprouted Moong Salad

Light Salads

Light salads are accompaniments enjoyed with a regular meal. These are not too heavy, but are made with vibrant ingredients and flavour-givers, which add a splash of colour and flavour to the meal. These salads must ideally be quick and easy to make, because you will be preparing them in addition to other dishes.

Within minutes, you can make a lovely salad of beetroot and garlic, which adds abundant energy to your meal.

Salads with Dressings

Some salads can be eaten plain with just a simple seasoning of salt and pepper, but most salads require a dressing to improve their taste and texture. The dressing has the power to make or break a salad. Even simple ingredients can be converted into an exotic salad fit for a party by using the appropriate dressing!

Check out the peanut dressing on this Thai Veg Salad with Peanut Dressing and the lemony, garlicky olive oil dressing in this bean salad Kidney Bean Salad. And here, we have used olive oil, lemon juice and balsamic vinegar to give the vegetable salad an unusual twist - Beetroot, Peppers, Carrot Healthy Salad for Work.

Note how the dressing transforms the salads into tongue-tickling delights. For more salad recipes with dressings, check out Salads with Dressing Recipes
