For the second day of summer salads, here is a simple yet delicious and filling salad made with cucumber and carrots. I used a little bit of yogurt for dressing which makes it a real good treat for this summer. I add raw veggies in diet daily and cucumber and carrot takes an important place in that. The coolness of cucumber and the sweetness of carrot along with their textures give a nice crunch in the salad. I kept it simple without any toppings, but you can add any crunchy topping if you like. My choice would be almonds as always.
As I mentioned yesterday, I don’t do elaborate dressings. I keep the salads simple and don’t stock up mayonnaise or any other dressing ingredients. As for mayonnaise, I am yet to try out home made version. The ones available in stores have so many added chemicals and sugar and I am not at all interested in buying. I am thinking of trying the egg version soon. If I succeed I will share it with you. If you like mayonnaise you can add it in this salad. I use salads as a way to satisfy my cravings and so the flavours in it depend upon what I am craving for that day. I didn’t have any unusual craving when I made this salad, so it is pretty simple and straightforward.
