Day 2 and I have a Fruit Nut and Seed Salad for the theme Take out Menu.

While ordering food from out , I always like to order salads , a new variety every time . For me no meal is complete without a salad . Even the everyday meal has to have salad , it might not be a very exclusive one , just some onions , tomatoes and cucumbers , but definitely a must .

So when we call for a take out I order a good new salad . This salad that I made has a bit of everything , cabbage , onions, carrot , cucumbers , nuts and seeds . The nuts provide a lovely crunch to the salad whereas the fruit give you that mild sweetness, which you are sure to love. The dressing is simple as I do not prefer heavy or time consuming dressings. Basic salt and pepper with some lemon is all time favourite but olive oil and honey change the flavours drastically and the salad becomes a gourmet salad .

Here are some other salads which have simple dressing but are  delicious and healthy.
