I know that vegetable salad/fruit salad is about cutting and mixing all vegetables/fruits (that we are able to get hold of) and making a salad out of it. But recently, I ate one vegetable salad in a shop nearby my house, which tasted much better than just taking some vegetables and mixing it. They mix, but they also seem to add some flavors to it.
While I am not interested to know their secret flavors, I do want to know what you people add to vegetable salad to make it tastier? What can we add? Can we add cheese? Salt/pepper? Olive oil? Lime? What else? What ever ingredients you suggest, please suggest the ones available at shops in India. Better if they are available ready-made/packaged. Less work
Also, it would be helpful if you can suggest something to make fruit salad more tasty. Honey? Curd? Custard? What else?
Thanks for all your help
