Sour and Sweet Leafy Lettuce

This bowl was so colorful when I made it that it had to be put on the blog. We loved the taste too of crunchy leafy lettuce and pear and the sweetness of the bananas. The cherry tomatoes were the sour dimension to balance the sweet.

Here is how I made it.


2-3 clusters of leafy lettuce
5-6 cherry tomatoes
1/2 pear 
2 Elaichi bananas
1/2 cucumber
salt and sugar 
squeeze of lime

Take a large salad bowl. Tear out or snip up the leafy lettuce. Halve the cherry tomatoes. Cut cucumber into chunky pieces. Dice the pear. Slice the Elaichi banana. Sprinkle a pinch of sugar and a large pinch salt. Toss around the vegetable and fruits. Squeeze a lime and toss once again.

On this day our lunch was cup noodles and this salad. Just when I was feeling lazy to cook and guilty to eat processed food I was happy I made this salad with its balanced taste and utter freshness lending the meal at home a completeness.
