Grape and Carrot Salad

Some of this days don't feel like anything heavy, that time salad comes to mind. Don't like boring tomato, onion, cucumber in my mind, that time my treasure comes to my rescue. I was looking at one of the books , which I won at Nayna's Giveaway event . It has such a simple and quick snacks and easy to prepare at home without any fancy ingredients. One recipe caught my eye, Grape and carrot salad. It has literally 4 ingredients in salad but never had it together as salad and simple and flavorful dressing, so without thinking for a minute , I made it in five minutes and enjoy it with my glass of smoothie for my healthy and quick and light lunch. Don't believe me take a look at the recipe and see. You can make it in big batch too, just increase the amount of ingredients. Thank you so much Nayna for the wonderful books. In coming future will use it more and more this easy dishes.

Do you see this nice new header? thanks to Meena from elephantsandthecoconuttrees, she made this for me. I am so thankful to her from bottom of my heart to her work and support. GOD bless you Meena.
