Carrot, Cucumber & Kidney Beans Salad

Since I began experimenting with salads a month ago, I have been fascinated with the many wonderful recipes that I tried out. Each one tastes better than the other. I now face a real dilemma – which one to choose each day. That is a real good situation to be in. I now look forward to lunch and the salad is invariably the star of the show. I know that there are many salads that substitute a whole meal – but I haven’t reached there yet. I intend to shortly. In the meanwhile, it amazes me that the taste of much the same vegetables can vary so dramatically with just the method of preparation changing. Take, for example, this salad containing carrots, cucumber and kidney beans – all ingredients normally used in salads. But the dressing makes each salad completely different from the next. Frankly, I am enjoying this journey!

Carrot, Cucumber & Kidney Beans Salad

  1. I love salads! Although i am not good at cooking,i thoroughly enjoy eating. My mum makes good tasting healthy salads atleast thrice a week. I long for different varieties of salads every time but since my brother is not quite fond of veggies my mom refrains from trying new varieties.
    I will try my hand at making this one, as it seems pretty easy to me!
