    Hi all,

    As it is said that if one wish to lose weight, one should eat more of fruits and salads.

    I only know one type of salad, which is made of onions, tomatoes and cucumber. (I hate raitas).

    Do anyone of you know how to prepare other salads? please inform me here.

    Thanking you.

    Diana:-D

    Hi,

    U can really go crative with salads. For. eg. make a simple cabbage cole slaw. and if u need to lose weight just make adjustments in the dressing. Shred cabbage, add little shredded carrot and celery, pepper powder. Mix together a tbsp. of mayo with with a tbsp of vinegar, some salt and sugar, whisk and mix with cabbage, allow to cool in fridge and then eat. cabbage being negative cal. veggie, this is great as diet food, but substitute the mayo with low fat curd, and a little mustard paste, and u are gd. to go to lose some weight. If keen on more salad recipes, mail me, I will share a few.

    Thanks! Another recipe I can post today is Apple Celery salad. Slice green apples, thin, without peeling. Mix with little lemon juice to avoid discoloration. Then chop up celery, add raisins to apple and celery, mix well. Then take mayonnaise in a bowl, pour some vinegar to it, add sugar and salt to tast, mix it with salad, sprinkle with chopped walnuts. Cool it and enjoy!

    Hi,
    Gr. to hear from others, so let me try to keep this thread going! her is another salad recipe. Beetroot (Beet, as it is known in US) salad. Boil Beetroot as is till 3/4th cooked. drain water, allow to cool and peel and cut into cubes. In a dish pour some vinegar, add salt and sugar and black pepper powder, mix well, and allow to sit for 2 hrs. before consuming. u can store this in the fridge for a few days, it gets only tastier!

    Hi,
    Each time I get a reply, I will post a recipe! I usually do not check out sites for recipes, most of my salad and cooking recipes are mostly a combination of some recipe or recipes, + a little of my own additions.

    Here's a recipe for Carrot Cole Slaw!

    Grate carrot, add some chopped celery and dry raisins.
    Mix together in a bowl - mayonnaise, vinegar, salt, sugar, pepper powder, whisk, add to salad ingredients, mix well and cool it for an hour or so before using it.
