Corn – Pasta Salad
If I am not wrong, salads are the healthiest and most soothing things to eyes in the culinary world

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

Undoubtedly, benefits are numerous as they add the fibres to your diet n you consume the essential vitamins n minerals. The credit goes to raw veggies and fruits which we add to this amazing salad. Though the variations are a lot but today I am sharing a unique salad This is a cold salad and I have added corn, macaroni pasta, a few veggies and fruits to it. The salad is creamy but no cream is used. The dressing is not a regular one. I have dressed  with coriander and raw mango chutney which has given a spicy- tangy kick to my salad
