  • 1 medium sized tomato de-seeded & cubed
  • 1/2 cup red or green apple (or tinned pineapple)
  • 1/2 cup chopped lettuce (iceberg)
  • 1/2 cup boiled pasta any shape.
  • 1 chicken boneless breast grilled (with any marinade of your choice)
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsely (or fresh coriander)
  • 1 green chili chopped (optional)
For dressing:
  • 3 tbsp mustard paste
  • 1 tbsp dry yogurt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp grated garlic
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • salt to taste

Combine all ingredients for salad in a glass bowl. Mix together all ingredients for dressing in a separate bowl. Keep both the bowls chilled. Add dressing to the salad just before serving.
