My salad days continue further. I am looking forward for the weekend to cook some Indian dishes. Do check out my blog on sunday for "Endi royyalu puratu". I plan to make that sunday - kind of craving for it. Btw, today I had some dates in the fridge so quickly made this salad dressing. Lime - Cilantro salad dressing is common - Dates are my addition instead of sugar used in the dressing. The dressing can also be used as a savoury dip.
6 tbsp - dates chopped
1/2 cup - cilantro
1 tbsp onions chopped (optional)
pinch of salt and pepper
1 tbsp red wine vinegar or lime juice
1 tbsp olive oil
Grind the above to a smooth mixture. Use as salad dressing or for a veggie dip. This yummy dip also goes for AFAM Dates hosted by Chandrika.
Variations and other ideas
1. Try adding a tbsp of chopped chillies for extra heat
2. Any of your favorite nuts would be a wonderful addition
3. For more indian flavour - cumin powder can be added with a bit of chat masala.
