Easy peasy zesty salad

zesty salad

This is a very light and refreshing zesty salad. One good reason why i like making salads is because they are easy, quick (minus the prep time) and of course healthy. Who can eat plain old veggies happily right? So i just add a dash of this and a pinch of that to add some healthy flavors that i can happily devour.

Plus this is such a versatile salad…you can add just about anything that you have at hand.


. 1/2 cup carrot, julienne

. 1/2 cup cabbage, finely chopped

. 1/2 cup boiled potato cubes

. 1/4 cup pomegranate

. salad dressing

What you need for the dressing:

. 1 tblsp extra virgin olive oil

. 1 tsp lemon juice

. 1/4 tsp red chili flakes

. 1/4 tsp brown sugar

. 1/4 tsp salt

. a small clove of garlic, finely minced


1. In a mixing bowl toss together all the veggies.

2. In another small bowl mix together the dressing ingredients, give it a good mix. Taste to adjust according to your taste.

3. Add dressing to the salad bowl and mix it up and its ready.

* Other options: You can add olives, tomatoes, chunks of apples and feel free to let your imagination run wild 🙂


Happy munching!
