Temperature is going down quickly in my city and I am enjoying the chilled whether outside. I remember in my school days we use to blow hot breath in our school bus glass windows and write lovely notes for our friends, a very innovative way of time pass and to get your message out, one such is still in my memory box -Really!! Friends are the best part of our small life. So true isn’t it! Those are lovely days if you have any such winter memory do share with us, friends coming to this blog will love to share your ever precious moments. In this winter days one thing I miss most are lush green trees and few of my friends living abroad are telling that it’s full of snow outside and like me if you are missing the greens then this green salad can bring back that missing green in your dinner table and be your mood enhancer!
So don't wait to try!
Small head butter lettuce-1 washed and dried, leaves torn into bite-size pieces Onion – 1 thinly sliced Blanched peas -1/2 cup Salted roasted almonds, coarsely chopped -1/2 cup Ricotta salata -1/2 cup shaved thinly with a vegetable peeler (optional) Salad dressing Lemon juice- 1 whole Lemon zest-1 tea spoon Olive oil -2 table spoon Sugar- 1/2 teaspoon Ajwain(carom seeds)/thyme-1/4 teaspoon Salt and pepper- to taste
In a bowl mix all the salad dressing ingredients . If you are using fresh young peas then keep them raw otherwise balanced a little bit. Then toss the lettuce, onion, peas with the dressing. Adjust seasoning and serve right away in individual serving plates and top with roasted almond and ricotta salata(if using).This salty cheese really make all the flavor sing. This green salad can be a light dinner choice with a protein like chicken breast of fish fillet any week nights or a good choice to serve to an elegant dinner party! Let me know how you will like to have this light, refreshing and delicious green salad.
Be Happy And Stay Healthy.
