Vegetable Salad

A quickie dish

This vegetable salad, prepared the Indian style is a hit many times over. You just got to try. The salad is very refreshing and keeps your eyes sparkling.

Marinating sauces for vegetables salad include olive oil, soy sauce. If there is a choice, I love strawberry vinegar as it has the best Flavour.

Salads blends well with curry. Healthy substitutes in modern days lifestyle. Learn to turn Gourmet food to familiar food. White carrot pickles seems interesting enough to lure the men to take their vegetables.

Can I know the cost for a cooking class? Then if you are happy, write in with some dates you are in Penang. Press on the little button on top of this page. It says "Cooking Class Enquiry".

The onion pickle as many of them commented is so good. Some friends would call me up each time they eat a "not so nice", meaning "no kick" pickle in their Murtabak. Murtabak is Penang hot food.
