Ribbon Salad


Ribbon salad ? Not satin ribbons! You could present a simple salad with humble flavours using the magic of a tiny peeler. With not much delay, let’s make a very healthy salad. One can eat this almost daily without getting bored.


  1. Carrot – 1 – Peeled into ribbons/long thin strips using a peeler
  2. Cucumber – 1 – Peeled into ribbons/long thin strips using a peeler
  3. Cherry Tomatoes – 5 – Sliced vertically
  4. Spring Onions – ½ Bunch – Cut into 1” pieces
  5. Fresh Basil – 4-5 leaves – Broken into pieces
  6. Mixed lettuce leaves – A bunch or as required – Broken into pieces
  7. Yellow Bell Pepper – ½ – Cut into long strips
  8. Salt

For Dressing:

  1. Olive Oil – 1 Tsp
  2. Honey – 1 Tsp
  3. Red Chilli Flakes – ½ Tsp
  4. Black Pepper Powder – ½ Tsp
  5. Sugar – A Pinch
  6. Lemon – 1 small – juice
  7. Salt


  1. Whisk all the dressing ingredients together.
  2. Arrange the ribbons and other veggies layer by layer on the serving plate and pour the dressing on all surfaces evenly. Serve immediately

Culinary Secrets:

  1. Change the dressing ingredients as you please. For instance, adding vinegar instead of lemon juice or changing to vegetable refined oil/sunflower oil for olive oil.
  2. But, make sure all flavours are balanced; a nice blend of sweetness, sourness, spice with a bang of freshness and present it with an aesthetic look to it.
