Colorful Corn Salad- Quick & Easy


Corn Salad is a salad which happened just like that, when I was sneaking into my fridge to get some stuff to satiate that wild appetite which strikes very frequently to us, Great Foodies in evenings, early mornings or mid-nights :). And nothing can be too quicker than salads. Put everything raw together with a flavorful quick dressing and your appetizing platter is ready to gobble up. Subconsciously I picked up few suitable ingredients found in forefront and later when I mixed them up all, I realized it was looking so colorful; red, yellow, green. Colorful dishes are not only appealing to children but to adults too. The salad was also looking the same; hence I named it Colorful Corn Salad (CCs).Colorful Corn Salad- Quick & Easy

Corn Salad is not only having the goodness of Corn but also capsicum, apple and tomato. Corn is rich in Dietary fiber, is an insoluble fiber. Thus it helps preventing common problems related to digestive system like constipation & hemorrhoid. It makes you feel full, hence reduces appetite and help tackling weight issues. Here, other ingredients are also nutritious & good to include in diet like Capsicum (anti-carcinogenic, ant-diabetic, anti-bacterial), apple (Vitamin C, A, fibrous, weight loss, etc endless), Tomato (Vitamin A, C, Lycopene an antioxidant, good for skin etc). And not to forget its dressing, the lemony sour (lemon-Vit.C, anti-inflammatory etc) & slight peppery.

All in all it is very healthy and good if included in Breakfast or as evening meal. Along with its health benefits, it is tasty as well. It was sweet & tangy with a slight peppery taste.
