Cucumber Carrot Pomegranate Salad

 I try to include atleast one salad in our everyday meal. I try to be as much innovative as possible, first thing not to get bored eating the same salad again and again and also different fruit and vegetable has different nutrients. So to get different nutrients, one has to try different fruits, veggies and legumes.

This is one such easy salad, but yet tasty and nutritious. However, if you are looking for low carb vegetables, please skip the carrot. Also I have used Nusalt instead of regular salt, which is high in potassium and low in sodium. Normally the taste of this salt is very distinct and one can easily find out the difference, but the addition of carrot and pomegranate adds a mild sweetness and kinds of suppresses the taste. If you are on a low-sodium diet, try substituting this salt instead of regular salt.

Preparation Time - 10 Minutes
Cooking Time - 2 Minutes

Pomegranate seeds - 1/2 cup

1) Grate the carrots, chop the cucumber into small pieces.

carrots & cucumber mixture.
