Mulmul and linen. Golgappas and greens. Wicker, white and floral. Yes, we do believe summer is already here.
A double-edged sword some may say but we prefer to consider this a golden opportunity. To do away with the old and bring in the new. Finally act upon some New Year’s Resolutions maybe? And what better place to start than in the kitchen. Take a two pronged approach, we gently suggest. One – eat healthy. Two – if one must eat healthy, eat pretty. Making things simple, we will focus on a single option. Salad. Let us set aside the sliced cucumber sprinkled with chaat masala of our youth, served on a steel thali and the heap of indeterminate vegetables drowning in mayonnaise. If salad is to be the lifestyle choice we’re making this season, let’s make it stylish, versatile and simple. Often found in the Lazuli office at lunch as the main event, we can guarantee it is easy to have a different salad each day of the week by playing around with just a handful of ingredients. More on that later. To motivate you now, we will show you how to up the fun quotient by putting your salad in the right setting.

Now to the salad. We’ve simplified things for you by breaking it down into clear cut categories. All ingredients listed are easily available. Definitely at Namdhari, Food Hall and Godrej Nature’s Basket and very likely at a grocery store near you. Pick your flavour profile, stock your pantry with the staples and you’re good to go. Fresh produce you buy as you need. Tear some leaves into the bowl, load up on the carbs, add fruit or veg to feel virtuous, protein if you want a complete meal, some flavourful cheese and herbs if you’re feeling decadent and finally something crunchy for light relief. Whisk or shake to make your dressing. Toss the salad. Lazuli tip? Less is more. A light slick of dressing on your salad is all you need. Don't forget to season with salt.
After much strife and stress, yes we do love salad that much and yes, we each believe our salad takes the prize for yummy, this is a short guide to some of our favourites.
