I was in the mood to have a salad, but surprisingly a little something on the sweeter side was on my mind. Prepared a usual salad, iceberg lettuce, mayonnaise, some capers, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, feta cheese, added some pineapple pieces & sultana’s to get the sweetness I was looking for. Mixed them all up and topped it up with some basil. Yet the sweetness I wanted was missing. I was looking for that missing ingredient & there it was… on the shelf…a bottle of chocolate sprinkles .. Keshav was like “chocolate in a salad… ?” I replied ” Well yes, why not? Let’s try it out”.
And that’s how this salad came to be..
This salad is sweet & sour, crunchy . I loved it.
It’s different from the usual salads. Do try it out and pass on your thoughts. 🙂
