Description

Being a foodie the greatest obstacle in life is to stop your cravings as hunger has no time and instead opting for a better healthy yet comforting treat .¬† This salad was one such invention when I was craving for pizza . I prepped up all I need for a pizza topping and tossed it up together as a salad instead with slight twists here and there . I ended up gobbling the entire lot and made sure to make plenty the next time . Even then it was devoured in no time . Perfect party starter as it can be made ahead and served in tiny lettuce cups topped with the salad . The secret benefit being it’s healthy , light , quick to cook and no need to work hard to impress . You will be surprised to see juniors coming back for more as the rainbow of colours and flavours just hits the right spot .
