Simply Salads

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I love to eat raw food, in fact, my husband, my both daughters love raw food especially the salad!! We are like cows or sheep when it comes to eat raw food or salad . The salad is the must for every dinner in our house.
And most of the times, when we are not more hungry, we love to eat only Salad.

When we were in Sharjah and Abu Dhabi, most of the times, we used to eat Falafel Sandwich or Showrma sandwich 
with lot of green leaf(In the middle of the restaurant, they keep big bowls of salted carrot, cucumber and radish pickles with different types of leafy vegetables on a table) 
When I read about EC's event,  thought many days about light meals, then decided to send my favorite food to her event.
