Last updated on: June 14, 2016 11:58 IST

Get your mixing bowls and treat yourself to these amazing salads.

There is nothing quite comparable to fresh crunchy salads for a meal.

If made with the right ingredients, salads can prove to be a wholesome meal too.

Fresh vegetables, even fruits, combined with a full-flavored vinaigrette that is not too heavy and oily is a key element to a successful salad.

Some nuts or grains sprinkled on top can enhance the texture and flavours.

Easy to make, one needs to be a little imaginative and a healthy, tasty salad can be ready in minutes.
