Perfect summer salad with fantastic dressing. Step by step recipe
- First you need to prepare a dressing so that it is well infused. To do this, grind cilantro and mint leaves into a convenient bowl with a knife.
- Then chop the garlic: I first crush the garlic with a knife, and then cut it.
- We also add dry mustard to the bowl: you can use ready-made mustard, only it must be sweet.
- We add sugar, lemon juice, olive oil, soy sauce to the ingredients in a bowl and mix everything thoroughly. Refueling is ready: you need to give her time to brew.
- We take tortilla cakes or pita bread, cut into any shape (can be cut using a curly knife) and send immediately to a heated dry frying pan. Constantly mixing, dry the pieces of pita bread or tortilla cakes, so that they become crispy, like chips.
- Wash bell pepper, peel the seeds and cut into medium-sized cubes. Sliced bell pepper put in a convenient bowl.
- Prepare the blue onion: it must be peeled and cut into medium pieces. Add chopped onion to a bowl of bell pepper.
- Next, wash and cut into pieces of medium size cucumber. Pour chopped cucumber into a bowl to the ingredients.
- We will prepare the cherry tomatoes: they need to be washed and cut in half. You can use any tomatoes. Sliced tomatoes put in a bowl to the prepared foods.
- For the recipe, you can use any kind of salad. It must be washed and dried, tear it into a bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
- All the ingredients in the bowl should be easily and accurately mixed with two spatulas or spoons so as not to crush lettuce leaves.
- We add dressing to the mixed products, and again we mix everything carefully.
- Tip. Leave a little dressing to sprinkle it with salad at the end.
- Add sesame to the salad (it must be fried) and mix.
- Also leave some sesame seeds to decorate the salad at the end.
- We put the finished salad on the dish, spread the crispy chips from the cakes on top, add the remaining dressing, so that it gets a little on the chips, lightly sprinkle with sesame seeds.
