The heat has already hit us in this part of the world…..I know it sounds funny as in the other part, people are still fighting the cold. However, the heat here is rising high and now switching to some cool foods could only keep us cool from within. Salads are one good option to keep you cool as well as to keep you full and healthy. I love salads and I always have salads ready at home. Variety of salads , which range from the simple to the lengthy ones,are always prepared and I thoroughly enjoy them.
Salads are great fillers too. A perfect much for mid-day snack or along with sandwiches or rolls. At times, I use these prepared salads are my filling for rolls and they taste so great. Quick and easy and packed with lots of nutrients in their raw form, which makes it even more better.
This is one of my trials. On my grocery purchase, I happened to see all these different varieties of leaves and other veggies, that I could not hold back myself from laying my hands on them. So fresh and crisp !!!! especially the Lettuce. The lettuce being packed with lots of health benefits, especially one that aids in weight loss is one of my favorites too.
A wonderful salad that could keep you cool and energetic for the entire day.
