How to make Indian Salad
To make up a big dish of Indian salad you’ll need two Little Gem lettuces, cucumber, tomatoes, onion, red chillies, coriander and lemon juice.
Simply shred the lettuce and dice up all the salad vegetables, finely slice the chilli, I keep the seeds in as I like the salad to give a really spicy kick of heat.
Toss all the ingredients together in a bowl and squeeze over a drizzle of lemon juice and a sprinkle of sea salt. Totally delicious and ridiculously simple.
Make our spicy salad your way…
- add some protein and turn this into a main course salad – try chicken, prawns, tofu, or grilled halloumi or simply throw in a can of chickpeas.
- skip the chilli if you don’t like things too hot
