Salad, really? 🙂 Indian salads often do not consist of Lettuce, it is usually just a few ingredients topped off with some kind of spice and lemon/lime juice. In general, Indians do not eat salad as a starter, it is usually incorporated within the meal as a side dish. For example, when making some kind of rice dish (Pulao), there will generally be salad on the side, some pickle, and some yogurt. The lemon/lime salad is tangy and enhances the overall flavor of any dish. Try this salad with some rice, yogurt and pickle on the side… it’s so good and takes 10 minutes to put together. Did I mention, it is FATFREE!
