Recipe for a colourful Arugula / Rocket and Bell Pepper Super Salad
When summer hits hard, all you want to do is drink cold beverages and eat fresh, chilled food. If it is no-cook then all the more better. Picture this – a big bowl of salad, with a whole spectrum of colours, tossed in a chilled, cool-green, sour cream dressing! Doesn’t it feel like a knight in shining armour for hot summer afternoons? A tall glass of beer lemonade with this wont be amiss.
So when Cucumbertown (my blog platform) announced a potluck gathering of all CT bloggers, I knew I wanted to take a salad. And it also helped that I had half a tub of sour cream in my fridge asking to be used. These kind of salads, full of the goodness of a variety of vegetables tossed in an interesting dressing, makes such a good centrepiece for your dining table in the summers. Try it sometime, you wont be disappointed! If you are worried about the calories from sour cream, try my simple Green Goddess Dressing made using yogurt, which will be much thinner than this one, but delicious nevertheless. Other option is to use hung yogurt in the place of sour cream, which will give you a thick dressing for fewer calories.
This recipe is just indicative. Feel free to use any other vegetables you have on hand, but make sure you choose vegetables of different colours to make it really come alive!
