One week of salad

I started having salad last week for lunch every day, and it's going pretty well as of now. Bought supplies for the next week today.


  • Iceberg lettuce

  • Lettuce

  • Purple/Green cabbage

  • Brocolli

  • Red/Green/Yellow Capsicum

  • Tomatoes

  • Cherry Tomatoes

  • Baby corn

  • Fresh Green Peas

  • Finely chopped carrots

  • Green/Black Olives

  • Soaked and sprouted moong and moth

  • Extra Virgin olive Oil (for the dressing)

  • Honey (for the dressing)

  • Salt (for the dressing, added just before eating)

  • Mixed Herbs (for the dressing)


  1. Cut and mix whatever you want to have in the salad. I generally choose about 6-8 items every day, and mix and match in any order I feel fit.

  2. Introduce the dressing (generally just olive oil and honey) except for the salt since the salt will make the vegetables dehydrate and lose their water. I take this tossed salad to office, so it is about 3hrs time from the time I mix it to the time that I consume it.
