Veg Salad

It's a wonderful, fresh, light salad for a hot summer day. This easy and fast salad is packed with more nutrients. Salads are low in calories and can help you lose weight. Salads add fiber to the diet which reduces cholesterol and constipation. Eating raw vegetables will keep you feeling better, look more fit, become healthier and live longer. Making a salad is relatively quick. The basic salad only requires that you wash and cut the vegetables and mix them with dressing only. In India, salads can be served as an appetizer or side dish, but it can be served as main course in other countries. I am fond of decorating salads attractively. Vegetable carving is my hobby. I  am improving my skills in vegetable and fruit carving in free time. Today I am sharing with you basic veg salad.
