Nutty Vegetable salad

A refreshing salad for breakfast gives a very good start of the day. This salad combines the goodness of fresh vegetables and nuts providing almost part of all the necessary vitamins and minerals needed for a day. This includes a nutty paste made of sesame and peanut as dressing,  making it an extended form of Mid-eastern Tahini. This is good for weight loss as well as a healthy snack for school going kids.

Method:

  1. Combine vegetables like onion,tomato,capsicum,carrot,black olives,coriander and any other veggies you would prefer.
  2. Make a thick paste of white sesame seeds,peanuts/groundnut,a tblspn of lemon juice,few garlic cloves,salt and a dry red chilli. Add water and gingelly oil for smoothening.
  3. In a pan, add olive oil and slightly roast nuts like almonds,flax seeds,walnuts and cucumber seeds for 2-3 minutes. Add it to the salad.
  4.  Add salt and pepper, lemon juice as per taste to the salad and add the nutty sauce finally as needed.

This salad can be eaten fresh or refrigerated.
