Best Salads...

Recommended Posts

Assalamu walikum...

 

I love eating salads... And usually I use every salad vegetable I can get my hands on.

Anybody got any ideas of anything different I could try?

 

I use:

Tomatoes, Iceberg Lettuce, Cucumber, Carrots, Onion, Chilli, Spring Onion, Red Cabbage, Rocket Leaf, White Cabbage, Coriander, Peppers (sometimes). Thats it...

 

Thanks in advance...

 

Assalamu walikum,

Your Muslim sis.

That list of vegetables you listed actually sounds quite extensive for a salad. :D It sounds yummy. Usually when I eat salad -- which is hardly ever -- we just get the generic salad package that's made up mostly of ordinary lettuce, but also has some of that purple lettuce and tiny strips of carrots.

 

I think adding sliced radishes would be a nice touch. And then some low-fat ranch dressing. Is there a Caesar salad dressing or something? I had one dressing but can't remember what it was called. It was good. And you could also sprinkle some grated cheese on top.

I do add cheese... In fact thats what i usually eat my salads with! And Tuna sometimes. I have mint yoghurt sometimes as a side salad sauce kind of thing.

 

its red cabbage not purple lettuce :D Yeh I also use it... Its gorgeous!

 

Thanks for your tips, will try some salad dressing Insha'Allah soon.

 

Salad is my food, without all the above mentioned ingredients a salad isn't a salad for me! :D

 

With duas',

I usually make a salad that has the following ingredients:

 

Small cut halaal chicken breast pieces cooked over a pan using sunflower oil mixed with a bit of "haldi", garlic and red spices including a bit of briyani "masala".

 

Then I add in some lettuce and just about any kind of vegetables I can find even broccoli and mix it up with the chicken :D

 

Then of course I add in usually italian or any sauce of any kind whichever you would prefer.

 

Chicken salad, especially when the Chicken is freshly cooked, tastes great (when its HALAAL!)!

sister eliza :D

 

what about beetroot? it gives this nice red colour to the salad.

 

i usually do a dressing with some vinegar, honey, olive oil, mustard seeds (? that yellow paste thing with those bits of black round stuff? :D) and just a wee bit of salt. it's yummy!

learnt it in scotland when i was there :D

here in my country, people don't usually take salad.

even if they do, it's the usual thousand island, mayonnaise dressing that comes in bottles. we also have french dressing and the like.. never tried them.
