Japanese Mixed Leaf Salad - It's veggie Time

These days we can see a lot of new veggies in the grocery shop and vegetable markets, which was not the case earlier. Some of these vegetables are uncommon & are grownup in some part of the world as climate permits, and crops may be cultivated in protected environments in less suitable locations. In today’s post,  I will share my story of such uncommon veggies & an awesome salad recipe. As we all know nutrition plays an important role in our daily life mostly low in fat and carbohydrates, but high in vitamins, minerals,  and the fibre having it raw or cooked.  Research proves that people who eat less than three servings of fruits and vegetables each day, those that eat more than five servings have an almost twenty percent lower risk of developing any health issues. Vegetables have been part of the human diet for many years. Some are essential foods but most are accessory foodstuffs, adding variety to meals with their unique flavours and at the same time, adding compulsory nutrients for health.

I remember in my childhood whenever we go to our village in summer vacations my granny used to cook fresh vegetables of her own kitchen garden. Because me and my brother were very choosy on vegetables so she surprisingly twisted & hidden with similar veggies on food like spinach with mustard leaves. Potato with other similar grounds. Really my granny was so smart and smartly she introduces such uncommon food to us.
Today by this post I am sharing one of the Japanese mixed leaf salad with some mixed herbs to create a new flavour for my appetite.
