A salad can be an appetizer, a side dish, a snack or a main course. So say good bye to the traditional salads and say hello to the unusual. The recipes are created to give pleasure to the most discriminating tastes and add splendor, colour & excitement to every meal. However, keeping in with today's demand, the use of heavy creams & thickening agents have been kept to a minimum. In most of the soups, vegetables themselves have been used as thickening agents. The soups given here are all simple and quick to prepare.
