This is very simple and delicious recipe, for the zucchini lovers . Quick to make on a lazy morning, goes well with chapati or even alongside rice. Stir-frying not only ensures fresh flavor, it also means healthier food, as little oil is needed for cooking. And the dish, with its vivid golden color, looks as beautiful as it tastes.

YELLOW DATES AND PEAR SALAD

Image

My husband recently bought a box full of yellow dates. I just love the fresh taste of them, though eating more of the unripe firm yellow dates, can give you an acidic mouth. The half ripe – half firm stage is the best to eat before they are fully ripened. So i made this refreshing light, crunchy salad brusting with the flavours. Walnuts give it that perfect nutty taste and really compliments the dates and pears.

INGREDIENTS:-

  • 2 cups yellow dates, pitted and halved
  • 2 medium pears, diced finely
  • 3 full cups lettuce- torn or roughly chopped
  • handful of tosted walnuts
  • 1/2 cup sprouts

date  salad

METHOD:-

Mix and toss all the ingredients in a bowl. We did not use any dressing for this salad, if you wish you can make a light vinenaigrette. And drizzle just before serving.
