Matar Salad

This is a tasty, refreshing and amazing Salad. Simple to make and healthy to eat :) Me n "R" both like to have lotsa veggies in our diet. I am practically crazy about raw veggies... I can enjoy a salad anytime of the day.... provided someone makes it for me.:P Did i mention I am very very lazy? ;).

Well this recipe was invented a fine day when I was out of salad (remember the big bag of salad u get in costco?). So i decided I will make a salad with some beans...checked the pantry and see my luck I was out of all beans too... no garbanzo cans, red beans or even black beans..:( I looked into the freezer and saw some green peas and voila... a recipe was born :)

Ingredients :

Frozen peas - 1 cup
Carrot - 1/3 cup (finely chopped or grated)
Onion - 1/2 cup (finely chopped)
Tomato - 1/2 cup (optional I didnt have it)
Lemon juice - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Black pepper - 1/2 tsp
Fresh coriander - 1/3 cup (finely chopped)

Method :

1) In a microwave bowl take the frozen peas and microwave for 5 to 6 minutes. 2) Let it cook well but not too mushy. 3) add the chopped carrots, onions, tomato and mix well. 4) Add salt, black pepper and the fresh coriander and mix well. 5) U can add some chopped lettuce if u like..:)

Enjoy this fresh Salad :)
