Orange And Veggie Crunchy Colorful Salad...

This is again inspired from the book 'Cooking with 1 Teaspoon of Oil', by Tarla Dalal. The original one is called Sweet Lime and Pepper Salad. Just looking at the picture in the book, I wanted to try this salad, but neither did I have sweet lime or any other pepper other than the green one. So decided to make my own version with oranges instead.
As the name suggests, it is a very crunchy salad, and very simple, easy and quick to make. Its a great choice for take-away lunches and for entertaining. Just add the dressing just before you are ready to eat it. This will ensure the veggies remain crisp...So, this is my version of it...

You will need
Green Pepper (capsicum) - 1, thinly sliced
Tomato - 1, sliced
Red small radishes with leaves - 4, sliced. Chop the leaves.
Red Cabbage - 1/4 cup, shredded
Seedless Orange segments - 1 whole

These below are to mixed together for the dressing
Mustard powder or optionally mustard paste - 1 tsp
Pepper Powder - 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste


- Combine the salad ingredients together well in a bowl. Chill if using after sometime.
- Just before serving, pour the dressing over the salad and toss till mixed well.
- Serve immediately and enjoy..

P.S: You can also use lettuce and cucumber slices in the salad.
