Corn – Pasta Salad


Corn pasta salad
If I am not wrong, salads are the healthiest and the  most soothing things to our eyes in the culinary world

Most of you would agree with me that setting and decorating a salad plate is an art. A colourful plate of salad invites you the most at the dinner table. So not exaggerating, this is an appetizer in a way.

Undoubtedly, the benefits of a salad are numerous as they add fiber to your diet to consume the essential vitamins and minerals. The credit goes to raw veggies and fruits which we add to this amazing salad.

Though salads’ variations are limitless, I am sharing a unique salad today. This is a cold salad and I have added corn, macaroni pasta, a few veggies, and fruits to it. The salad is creamy but hey hey! no cream is used because the hung curd replaces it. And surprisingly, the dressing too is not a regular one. I have dressed my salad with coriander- raw mango chutney for a spicy-tangy kick
Hope you would love the taste of this lovely salad
