Most days, I make my salads with beans or lentil base. I start with a bowl of cooked beans and work my way up by adding favorite or seasonal or sometime with what’s available in my fridge. There is no recipe for a salad. You can play and create one based on your liking. I will top it with seasonal vegetables and fruits. The vinaigrette is made with Indian spices like cumin, garam masala, oil and lemon juice. Today’s post is a quick salad made with green peas. I love this beans because they are tiny and cooks faster. I soak the beans overnight and pressure cook it the following day. Some days, I let the bean sprouts and I add them raw to my salads.
