A Winner!

This salad is awesome 'cos it looks colourful and appetising, it smells refreshing, it tastes great and it is oh-so-healthy!! Now that's a sure winner! Plus, it's so easy to make, so go on and try it and I can guarantee that this salad will creep into your meals quite often :-)

It's also a great addition to your starters/appetisers list for your next big lunch/dinner party. Serve it with some corn chips on the side and it will be devoured in no time. Your guests will thank you for a snack they can gorge on guilt free. It adds colour to your table and saves precious time (which you could probably use to dress up a little bit!)

You need -
  • 1 cup of corn kernels (you could either buy fresh corn, boil it and slice the kernels off the cob, which is recommended as it is fresh, or you could even use the canned ones)
  • 1 cup finely diced carrots
  • 1/2 cup finely diced cucumber
  • 1 finely diced tomato
  • 1/2 an onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander/cilantro
  • 2 tbspns roasted peanuts (gives it a crunchy punch!)
  • 2 tbspns mint chutney
  • salt, pepper, sugar, lime juice, and chat masala (optional) for flavour
Simply toss everything together in a salad bowl and add salt, pepper, sugar, lime juice and some chat masala (available at Indian stores, a tangy powder) according to taste.
This is great if you're watching your diet, especially for dinner. It's very light on the stomach but very filling too. The perfect combination, I'm sure many of you would agree, if you're like me, fighting with calories, perpetually!
