As I make Salad daily for lunch, there is a need for different variety of dressings in order to boredom. Fruits can be consumed as it is. Some vegetables like Carrot, Onion, Cucumber and Capsicum can also be devoured raw. But potato needs to be cooked for any dish. Today I made Healthy Salad with Rosemary Dressing for lunch. For this I used some of fresh fruits, raw vegetables and boiled potatoes along with broccoli.

I did sauteing for potatoes and Broccoli separately since the later one needs different method. To know How to Clean and Sauté Broccoli, just click the link here. Adding boiled and sautéed potatoes to the Salad, gives a different taste. I always suggest you to use fresh potato which looks mud coated; this gives you good minerals and avoids gastric problems. This healthy Salad is prepared using fresh Rosemary dressings, as it not only gives good taste, also enhances the aroma in it.

This Salad recipe is little lengthier, as we need to boil Potato and sauté the same. Also the Broccoli needs to be cleaned and sautéed separately. Just cut the vegetables and fruits to cube shaped pieces. Prepare dressing by adding ingredients under Rosemary dressings list; add the same to the cut fruits and veggies including sautéed ones. Mix well. Remember to add the dressing just 15 minutes before serving. The dressing should marinate properly before serving. Don’t keep this Healthy Salad with Rosemary Dressing for more time, as it leaves the water content in it. Finally the end result of this Healthy Salad with Rosemary Dressing is really amazing.
