Sunrise to Sunset..... GoKul...... ! Oaty fruti salad Reposted...

Yippee......Once again UK has been blessed by mother nature and she left Sun on for 2-3 days...and so we started having chilled food once again ..I made a few dishes which are very healthy, very quick to make and delicious too...For breakfast I made Fruit Salad, for lunch I made Chick pea salad with mint dressing and Mix lentil salad with hazel nuts....Mostly every summer I make these dishes and we all really enjoy it...

Oaty Fruit Salad:-
  • Any type of fruit peeled and cubed ( I used banana, papaya, apple, grapes, kiwi fruit, Mangoes, strawberries, pears)
  • 1/2 cup low fat natural yogurt
  • 2-3 tbsp Dry fruit ( I used dates, Apricots and prunes)
  • 2 tbsp Nuts and seeds ( I used walnuts, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds and flax seeds)
  • 2 tbsp Rolled oats
Method:-
Place everything in a bowl and serve..Enjoy healthy vitamin packed breakfast, in the beautiful sunshine (which itself gives of vitamin D)...

Chick pea Salad with Mint Dressing:-
Chick peas also called Garbanzo Beans. For Health benefits please see this link...really useful information...Adding yogurt in this salad you get protein and calcium, also adding coriander and mint you'll get vitamin A....

  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 1 cup cucumber -cubed
  • salt to taste

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped Fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh coriander
  • 4 tbsp low fat yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar (optional)
  • salt and black pepper to taste
Method:-
Place all the dressing ingredients in a blender and blend well till you make a puree..and leave it in the fridge..Mix all the salad stuff and mix well with the dressing and let it chilled..Enjoy !!

Mix lentil salad with Hazel nuts:-
  • 1 cup Green and Brown Masoor whole (Green and brown lentils whole) cooked but not mushed

  11. Great line up, looks appropriate for hot weather. We have 94F, full blast Sun. Went to mall, had Cinnabons and Iced drinks, shopped and came home straight, couldn't take the heat outside! Yeah, don't know how we handled the heat while growing up in India, but we are so spoiled here! :D

    Enjoy the Sun there.
