SRC: Colourful Salad by Chocolate & Dreams

This was my first month of participating in the Secret Recipe Club! I was paired with Rituparna of Chocolate & Dreams, who is a food blogger who lives in India. She has lots of beautiful desserts and yummy looking Indian food!

I decided to make a half batch of her colourful salad. (I really wanted to make something delicious like these whiskey balls or one of her cakes, but given that me, sugar, dairy and coconuts are having a love/hate relationship at the moment, it didn’t seem like the wisest idea. Hopefully another time!) I didn’t have any peas or salad dressing that I could eat, so I left out the peas and created a tasty vinaigrette with equal parts of honey, oil and apple cider vinegar.

This salad was spectacular and very pretty – I almost didn’t want to let Mr. Bean eat any because it was so good! The honey really took the edge off the red onion and hot cabbage – something I wasn’t expecting but made the salad that much better! I would definitely recommend giving this salad a try.

I really enjoyed the secret recipe club – it was a great experience being able to look through someone elses blog and at all their tasty looking recipes. After looking through Rituparna’s blog, it makes me want to find a store that sells Indian food ingredients to be able to make more of her recipes!
