Salad Decoration (FIC - Red & Green)

No prize for guessing.......I think the first thing that comes to mind while preparing salads is a red & green combination of tomatoes & cucumber with the addition of slices of carrots, onions, radish etc.....

I love to decorate salads, each time in a unique way....I think I got this fever after participating in the various salad decoration competitions during my school days (our house even won the first position).

Simple to prepare also.
Wash and peel the cucumber. Wash and cut the tomatoes into roundels. Make thin onion slices.
(You can put other vegetales like carrots, beet, radish, capsicum to make it a wholesome salad).
Slit green chilli lengthwise (You can keep them whole as well). Cut long strips of ginger.
Arrange in a serving plate. Sprinkle juice of 1 lemon.
Sprinkle salt & pepper and serve.

Sprinkle salt only during serving time otherwise the ingredients will become soggy and water will come out from the cucumbers.
If you are using carrot & beet, steam the slices slightly so that they are easily eaten.
You can use various dressings also.

So the above salad decoration clicks are going out to the FIC-Red & Green event, hosted by Neha of Tasty Recipes, an event started by Sunshinemom of Tongue Ticklers.
