Mixed bean salad with strawberry salad dressing - Salad recipes - Healthy one pot meal - Diet recipe - Party recipes - Diet recipes

Salads have become so interesting for me ever since I started to try using different salad dressings. This is perfect way to make your boring salad into enjoyable one. I mistakenly brought home 2 pockets of strawberry which I did know how to use. I remember having salad with strawberry dressing during one of my office outings. I love  strawberry smoothie . So thought of combining buttermilk and strawberry for salad dressing. I have used raisins to sweeten the dressing. You can replace it with sugar and if your strawberry is sweet you can all together skip it. Happy dieting!

For Strawberry buttermilk dressing

Strawberry - 7 or 9 (medium size. When chopped into 4 it comes to 1 cup)
Salt a pinch
Raisin - 1 tablespoon (adjust to your taste)
Mint leaves - 7-9 
Garlic - 1 clove
Butter milk - 1/2 cup (adjust to your preferred thickness)

For Salad

Mixed whole beans - 1.5 cup
Onion - 1/2 (finely chopped)
Tomatoes - 1/2 (finely chopped)
Salt to taste


Wash and soak the dals/ whole beans overnight. Cook it with salt (I have used pressure cooker). Drain extra water and keep it aside
Soak Dry Raisins for 10 mins. Combine Strawberry, salt, mint, soaked raisins and grind to coarse paste first. Now add butter milk and garlic. 
Grind again till you desired consistency. Mix in Cooked Bean, Onion, tomatoes and salad dressing. Mix well
Serve chillied
