Red cabbage and Corn salad

Ever since I discovered this egg-free mayo, I’am searching for newer ways to utilise it. Used it as a spread in sandwiches, and as dressings for salads. Cold salads for hot summer afternoons, is something to definitely look forward to for lunch these days. I used my homemade mayo in this colorful salad, vary the vegetables according to the availability.



  • Red cabbage- 1/2, finely sliced into thin strips
  • Baby corn- 4-5 (cut into roundels)
  • Sweet corn- ½ cup
  • Capsicum/ bell pepper of any color of choice- 1 small
  • Broccoli florets – 1 cup
  • Green peas- ¼  cup
  • Cherry tomatoes ( I used normal ones)- 4-5
  • Roasted bread cubes- optional

Spices and seasonings:

  • Lemon juice- 1 teaspoon
  • Mayonaise – 1 heaped tablespoon
  • Chilly flakes- 1 teaspoon
  • Salt – to taste



Method :

  • Steam baby corn, sweet corn, broccoli, diced capsicum, green peas in  steamer / idli stand.
  • Marinate thinly sliced red cabbage with lemon juice and salt for ten minutes. If you want the salad to be crunchier, use it after marination. However if you don’t like the raw taste of cabbage, steam it separately for 2-3 minutes. Excessive steaming will make it very soft.
