The minute you think of dieting, the first thing that pops up in your mind are salads. I always end up trying out new combinations of mixed vegetables and fruits to come up with a salad recipe for my dieting and have it as my lunch. This salad also was a similar try. The citrusy orange flavour with the tang helped to break the sweetness of the beetroots and carrots. The avocado gave a creaminess and the crisps with the almonds gave a good crunch. All in all a flavour bomb with all the possible texture’s in one bite.    Easy to make, tasty, filling and healthy.  Now isn’t this a recipe for keeps ? This is my go to recipe when ever I crave for a healthy option. Don’t miss out on trying it peeps.
