i usually make this veggie salad to accompany with a light khichdi or simple dal-rice. 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, dal-rice or cooling curries like kokum curry and lauki curry.

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. its very important and healthy practice to include salads in the diet.
