This salad recipe I have been wanting to post for a long long time. I am attempting blog in tandem with my friend Preethi who writes at The Meal Algorithm. Nevertheless, it makes it to the blog on its good looks and subtle Asian flavours. I am big on Asian flavours in food. I try to replicate a lot of them (never claimed they were authentic) in my kitchen and some of them have made it to the blog like these Asian Rice Paper Rolls. I had not eaten anything so delicate and fresh till I made these. I was delighted that they are being served at a Chinese restaurant we patronise. Or this Asian Raw Mango Salad I tried to replicate from memory and it turned out so good. Or even this Thai Noodle Salad
What I particularly like about this salad (apart from the fact that it is so so pretty) is that you get to eat your coloured vegetables and get your fibre fix for the day! the Indian apples are just coming out in the market, fresh beans and coloured peppers are also in abundance, all the reasons to make this. Toasted sesame seeds add a nice nuttiness to the dish and honey adds just a touch of sweetness.
