Mixed Veg Salad in a Spicy Yogurt & Mayo Dressing

Mixed Veg Salad
   Hi All!

After I have come back from my holiday the days are passing by at a jet speed. New year has surely made me realize that my sabbatical should end now and I should get back to work. Last few days were surely hectic in a sense that I was doing many things at the same time, on top of it my laptop needed formatting urgently, so that surely explains why my blog hopping has been minimal and I do I regret missing out so many wonderful posts. I know things are not going to be as smooth as earlier as I start my job search again and once I am into a job I just pray that I am able to post at least few times in a month. I am already dreading that people are going to forget my name eventually :-(.

With so many veggies available these days I am freaking out on salads. I love salads especially when I want to eat light and yet want to have a wholesome meal. I do make our traditional Maharashtrian koshimbir with variations here and there, else indulge into new ones.
This particular salad is my innovation, it is a spicy and tasty preparation. The dressing, as a  matter of fact even the salad is something that can be eaten as a whole or filled in a bread and made into a sandwich, choice is entirely yours. I had a big bowl of this for my dinner and that helped me keep my stomach light.
The mayonnaise I have used here is eggless and is relatively low in fat. The recipe of the eggless mayonnaise I will post in a few days in my other blog KITCHEN-BASICS.


1/2 of large carrot grated
1/2 cup sweet corn boiled
3-4 broccoli florets blanched
3-4 babycorn blanched and finely chopped
a small piece cabbage finely chopped
3 tbsp yogurt
3 tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp red chili pwd
1/2 tsp red chili flakes
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp freshly crushed pepper
salt to taste


Mix the yogurt, mayonnaise, chili flakes, red chili pwd, garlic salt and salt to make the dressing.
Mix all the veggies and mix the dressing into it.
Chill the salad and serve.

Sending this to my event ‘Only’ Salad, guest hosted by Prathibha.
