Welcome to my cookbook Cookerypoint - Ila's Kitchen. Its my final day in Blogging Marathon. I want to give a simple,yummy and quick salad. Here is Carrot salad. It is wonderful crunchy salad with nutty flavored and yummy taste. It is very refreshing and suitable for very light snack in evening. I used almonds here but your own choice of nuts can be used. So lets move on to our salad...


Carrots - 4 no (Grated)
Coriander leaves - 2 tbspn (Finely chopped)
Fresh red chilli - 1 no (Finely chopped)
Flaked almonds - 2 tbspn
Salad leaves - 1 bunch

For dressing:

Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 3 tbspn
Lemon juice - 1/4 (Squeeze juice)
Fresh ginger - 2 inch (Grated finely)
salt as required
Pepper as required


Prepare dressing by gently whisking lemon juice with olive oil.
Add grated ginger,salt,pepper and mix well and dressing is ready.
Grate the carrot in processor or grater.
Now add redchilli and coriander leaves and mix well.
Now pour the dressing and mix well.
Dry roast the flaked almonds and add to salad.
Gently mix the salad and serve with salad leaves.

Serving Suggestion:
