Jackseed Veggie Salad
This is just three easy steps salad with jackseed at every bite. March to May is jackfruit season and lots of jackfruit seeds go waste, I just thought of using these underutilized seeds for a healthy tasty dish. They are highly rich in protein, vitamin A, vitamin C content with few antioxidants and loaded with carbohydrates, dietary fiber. It’s very simple to prepare and any vegetable of choice can be used. I have used Ranch dressing without mayonnaise. It forms a one bowl meal can be served either chilled or as it is.
Here goes the recipe
Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 30 mins
Serves: 4 Nos
Jackseed dried and cooked-1/4 cup
Chopped Veggies- 3/4 cup (cabbage, tomato, onion and sweet corn)
For ranch salad dressing (this is my version)
Buttermilk- 1/4 cup
Basil leaves-3-5 nos
Black pepper-1 tsp
Dill leaves- 1 tsp
Salt as per taste
Tahini paste-1/2 tsp
Olive oil/ coconut oil- 1 tbsp
Lemon juice-1/2 tsp
Crushed garlic-1 tsp
- Prepare the salad dressing by mixing all the ingredients under ranch salad dressing.
- Take a big bowl, add all the veggies with chopped and cooked jackseed, now add the ranch salad dressing to this and mix well.
- Refrigerate for half an hour and serve chilled.
Any veggie like cucumber, carrot can be used in this salad.
Typical ranch salad dressing is prepared with mayonnaise. Any kind of salad dressing can be used. I have used coconut oil to give a typical Karnataka touch to the salad.
Refrigeration is completely optional.
