This Vegetable salad recipe is a summer salad that is sure to make you fresh, light and healthy. Gluten-free and Vegan.

This mix veggie salad with nuts & seeds is super healthy. The freshness of the raw veggies, the crispness of the roasted nuts and flavors of fresh herbs come together in one healthy bowl.

This healthy cold vegetable salad is great in the summer when all the produce is fresh and green! Try having this mixed vegetable salad once or twice a week for lunch or dinner.

I usually make this salad to accompany a light khichdi or simple lentil-rice dish. Sometimes I just have a bowl of salads in these hot months along with fruit juices or smoothies. Not that we survive only on salads. I do make light meals like khichdi, dalia or lentils with rice or cooling curries like kokum curry and bottle gourd curry.

Variations you can make in salad

  • I have added veggies like carrots, cucumber, radish, spring onions and tomatoes to this salad. You can add your choice of fresh veggies or sprouts too.
  • Even lightly steamed veggies like broccoli, french beans or cooked corn, cauliflower, baby corn can be added.
  • Also, you can add your own choice of dry fruits and seeds. I added what I had at home.
