Salads and raitas add a refreshing taste to meals. Made with a variety
of vegetables, fruits, grains, and lentils, salads not only add taste
and color, but also nutrition
to your meals.
It's easy to get your five servings of vegetabes and
fruits, as well as protein and fiber with salads.
Indian salads are dry or yogurt-based and have raw or cooked
vegetable salads taste great on their own or with rice, while yogurt
raitas are usually served with roti and other Indian flat breads, or
with different types of flavored rice, such as fried rice and pulao.
Salads are very easy to put together, and many can be made ahead of
time and refrigerated. You get a lot of nutrition with little effort.
