My father – in – laws elder brothers wife mrs mahmudha Rabbani is a foodie like me but a vegetarian by choice and a bit fussy too . But she enjoys experimenting with new dishes in her kitchen that she gets to know through her enormous traveling around the world . She makes sure to send her trials home to me for a second opinion flaming with passion of a true food lover . My challenge next is to send some thing in return which has to be healthy that tastes good and must be a vegetarian dish . So on one such occasion I came up with this salad instantly . Amma loves salads in any form but with out water melon in it . She went head over heels with this salad that she finished her savoured lunch just by eating the salad alone with her eyes and taste buds alike . My secret  was the right balance of various textures , flavours  and the right combination of colours used . The ingredients mentioned for this salad are often in use in my cooking . Now it’s your turn to wow all your loved ones around food lovers .
