A Bowlful of Happiness #sikandalouscuisine

​Zavher Amit Chowdhury had posted a delicious Salad Nicoise which had my tastebuds in a tizzy . Inspired to eat healthy and deliciously too , I finally got down to making this bowlful of happiness - and it sure was a lot of happiness . 

In this salad , the ingredients are so full of juicy flavors -you really dont need a strong dressing , I innovated and came up with this oil free dressing.​ Ingredients too are as per your taste  and what's in the fridge . Here is what I did.

Salad Dressing:
1 Large Juicy Tomato
60 Ml Orange/Malta Juice.
1-2 Teaspoons Balsamic Vinegar - Even Lemon juice is good.
A Pinch of Salt.
Zap the above for 2-3 short zaps in a blender , strain . Then add salt and a pinch of dried thyme - use whatever herb you have.Allow this to rest for 30 minutes for herbs to infuse flavors while you get prepping your salad. 

Salad Ingredients :
1 Large Tomato - 8 Pieces.
6-8 Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes - Cut in half .
1 Tiny Onion - Cut in thick Rings.
2 Artichoke Hearts - Cut into 4-6 wedges.
Some Canned Tuna - Next time I will avoid.
Asparagus Spears.
Orange / Malta Segments.
1 Hard Boiled Egg - Cut in 4.
Basil Leaves.
Soft Feta Cheese.

Plate the salad ingredients on a bed of lettuce, sprinkle salt and freshly ground black pepper .Spoon on dressing generously and sit down to a bowlful of happiness !
