Lemony Dill Salad

Recipe: Salad greens tossed in olive oil - lemon – dill dressing !

LemonyDillSalad (2) 
     One of my favorite salads, and follows after my dill bhaji recipe/curry. It is very rare that I get some good big bundles of dill, and when I do, sure, I make,  to pick up 3 –4 bunches of the dill @ the Indian stores. Reason being, in other grocery stores it is a tiny bunch sold as a herb. This salad should be prepared fresh as the lemon, tomato and salt will make it juicy, so do not prepare it ahead of time. I haven’t included cucumber in the salad because of the allergies but go ahead and include it to make the salad more crunchy. This tastes great and is as good as a raita on the side with regular meals. The salad goes to Divya’s Show Me Your Salad , Sudeshna’s Carnival of Salad and since dill is very much a part of the middle eastern cuisine, this also goes to  Regional Recipes – Middle East by Joanne. Enjoy the salad !!!

Ingredients:
4 –5 cups greens(lettuce)
1/4 cup dill, finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 onion, sliced, washed
1 tomato, sliced
salt
cucumber slices (optional)

Preparation Method:
1.In a bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice and salt.
2. Add the chopped dill leaves and give a nice stir. Add sliced onions and tomatoes and mix.
3. Add the greens, cucumber and toss !!
4. Salad is ready, garnish with some more dill and serve it as a side with the meals !
