Fresh Garden Salad

Fresh Garden Salad
Fresh Garden Salad

We love salads and most of the days I prepare a salad for our dinner. This is very simple and I used Thousand Island as dressing. I didn’t add any other veggies like tomato for this as I wanted the crunchy taste of lettuce/leaf mix. Whenever we visit a wet market, I buy some fresh salad leaf mix. It is nice to have different types of leaves as a mix than one type of lettuce.
With the Thousand Island dressing, this came out delicious and it was a good combination.

Steamed Carrot Salad

Easy Carrot Recipes

This is a very simple and easy Carrot Salad from Sri Lanka. It takes few minutes to prepare. I usually add this carrot salad to our meal due to its easiness & health factors. To steam carrot, I use the steam tray of the rice cooker, so once the rice is cooked, carrot is ready to go to the salad. Boiled carrot can be used instead of steamed carrot. But steaming saves its nutrients.
Here is the recipe for simple carrot salad. Hope you would love it!

Sri Lankan Bandakka Salada (Ladies Fingers / Okra Salad Recipe)

Bandakka or Lady Finger is a vegetable which has a watery taste. In Sri Lanka, we have different recipes with Bandakka (okra), however normally I cook another spicy dish if I cook bandakka. If not, it is difficult to match the taste of the meal. Few years ago I tasted Bandakka Salada in a buffet in a Sri Lankan restaurant. I cannot remember the exact location or name, anyway it was in Galle road between  Kaluthara and Colombo. That was really tasty. After that day, Bandakka Salada included in my menu time to time. For this recipe, adjust salt, pepper & lime juice as per your taste. Then, I am sure you would love Sri Lankan Bandakka Salada much!
