Winter in a bowl : Carrot, Radish & Peas Salad
I eat a LOT of salads at home but somehow I only get around sharing salads on instagram (follow me there BTW, if you aren't already. Some fun food and travel stuff). This year with a promise to myself to share more recipes, I will do 52 salads, one a week. Looks doable. Fingers Crossed that I make it happen.
Starting with this beautiful salad inspired by Delhi Winters that I miss so sorely. The bright red carrots slightly sweet and full of flavour. White as snow radish, with slight sharpness, nice and juicy. And those tender melt in your mouth fresh peas. I combined them all together to bring this beautiful salad together, with a dressing of simple Indian spices, lemon and mustard oil. If you aren't too fond of the pungent mustard oil, you can replace it with EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil). I have tried it with that and the salad still tastes great.
So here is a salad which screams Winter in a bowl.
For the dressing :
- Peel and grate the red carrots and white radish. Keep aside till needed
- In an old empty jar, mix all the dressing ingredients and shake till well blended.
- Mix carrots, radish and peas. Add the dressing and gently mix. Garnish with coriander leaves and relish along side a meal or a light meal by itself
