Few years back I used to say eeewww :-(,when I see a salad and believe me now I started eating them on a regular basis.This time the credit goes to my mother in law as she makes salads regularly at home and everyone likes to eat it.After marriage I was surprised to eat raw vegetables along with rasam or sambar.But some of my mother in law's salads are really tasty with addition of simple ingredients and also due to the increasing awareness of healthy eating,I developed a like towards tasty salads and they are truly stomach filling and helps you to take reduced amount of rice or roti.It serves as a good side dish for sambar or vathakuzhambu with hot plain rice also.
