A Quick Salad Meal

Somedays, I don't feel like cooking. And I don't prefer to order food from outside. Its just something light and filling that I want, maybe like a sandwich or a salad.

I made this salad a few weeks ago, totally inspired by the Subway salad. It is so easy and quick and absolutely delicious.

This also helps to keep my weight loss goals :-)




Ingredients:

7-8 cherry tomatoes,
1 cup iceberg lettuce,
2 tbsp olives (black or green), chopped,
2 tbsp gherkins, chopped,
1/4 cup paneer or boiled chicken, cut into pieces,
2 tbsp of onions, (I have not used here)
8-10 cucumber slices, thinly cut  roundels,

For the dressing:
1 tbsp honey,
1 tsp olive oil,
1 tsp lemon juice,
Salt to taste,
Pepper to taste.

Method:
  1. In a small bowl, add the ingredients for the dressing. Mix well and set it aside.
  2. In another big bowl, tear the lettuce leaves. Cut the cherry tomatoes into half, and add the rest of the ingredients. 
  3. Give it a very light mix.
  4. On the serving plate, lift the ingredients of the salad and place it carefully.
  5. Pour the dressing over the salad and serve immediately. 

This is a cold salad, so make sure all the ingredients are cold and work on them just before serving. This is a great salad to be served on the dinner table.

I have it just on its own as a meal :-)
