30 days 30 salads, Day 1 to Day 10

Finally day 30 of my salad series!! I can’t tell you all what an incredible journey it was for me! My blog  gained 30 posts in a month ( maximum by faaaaar), but most importantly, it was an enriching experience for me.  What started with a simple pumpkin raita, the journey gained momentum with some spicy tangy salsas, few fruit salads, few cabbage recipes, and lots and lots of colourful concoctions in between. Ideas started pouring in from friends,sisters, cousins, colleagues, relatives and lots and lots of google search . Each giving out their inputs, which truly is the reason behind a wide variety of salads in the series.

Most of the salads were made with easily available ingredients, avoiding use of any exotic vegetable/ technique. Though I loooved all the recipes, my most favourite remains raw papaya salad, cabbage raita, tomato and plum salsa, mango salsa, and sprouts salad. A variety of fruit salads formed a part of this series, with custard sauce made with oats ( oats mango fruit custard, gulkand oats fruit custard), custard apple ( custard apple fruit custard), hung curd ( fruit shrikhand) and broken glass fruit pudding. The very idea of this series was also to learn some easy international dishes, and I was able to include few like Russian salad, Mexican sweetcorn salad, Three bean salad, Coleslaw, Greek salad and Rojak. Some traditional and oft made salads at home like kosambri, cabbage raita, pumpkin raita, tomato raita, cucumber-carrot-beetroot raita also formed a part of the series.
