Oh yes, British weather is back to what its supposed to be. A couple of days have been much cooler than last weekend. That sweltering heat made me slow and tired, never mind the cooking, the hot weather deterred me from going to the oven. My better half suggested that we should order pizza, I agreed with him. He was just about to pick up the phone to order the pizza, but I thought about my sunny boy and realised that he does not like Pizza! yes, you read it right, He would happily gobble down Bitter Gourd Sabzi, Green Vegetables and daals which are his most favourite. He is very specific about the food he eats, basically, it must be cooked by his own mum. Dinner time must include Indian meals and fresh Roti every evening of which he wouldn't be able to sleep without. I think I've spoilt him a bit too much:)


Lol. better half got disappointed as I asked him not to order the pizza. I found a couple of containers in the freezer, in one there was Daal Makhni and in second Tindora Nu Saak, enough for my Sunny boy.  His dinner was sorted, I prepared just a few chapattis for him and so we settled with some delicious cucumber sandwiches with this salad.

I had to hardly prepare anything for this recipe, I used whatever I found in my kitchen. just a bit of chopping and we grilled corn and nectarine. Flavoursome and well-balanced salad, there is no hard work involved, just toss everything together with little olive oil and voila! This salad was a killer, there was nothing in there not to like about. I prepared little more than we needed and kept in a refrigerator to take pictures because I thought this salad definitely deserves a place on my blog.

Instead of Nectarine, Peaches can be used.
