Salad Decoration -1

So as promised, here I am with a very new feature in this blog. With all those tempting dishes on the dinner table, there is one more very common plate i.e. Salad. This is something which is there by default. We do everything from seasoning to garnishing to present our recipes as it is rightly said that first we eat with our eyes. So, why not do the same for our salads. This can be done very easily and takes minimal time. You just need to experiment with different things and just need to place them properly on the plate.

The salad plate doesn’t need much detailing as it is self explanatory. In case, you need to know something, leave a comment.

Basic things used in this plate are

Carrot for base

Tomatoes in pieces

Rad-dish in Mouse      

Beans as Mouse tail but can be substituted with a green chilly

Capsicum as a container for Onions

Coriander Leaves as garnish

So, be ready to amaze your guests next time with this simple salad decoration.

Ps: Sending this to Salad Spread Event 


Last week I received some very precious awards from Charitha of womensera2008. She is currently hosting a very innovative event too. The same award was passed to me by one of our another blogger friend Divya from divyascookingjourney

I would like to thank both of them for being so thoughtful and giving us such nice innovative recipes.

As per the rules of this award, I would like to share this with 15 of my fellow bloggers who have always given us a reason to try something new every day.

First Birthday

Happy Birthday to Suvidha’s Kitchen.

It’s been a year today since the first post on this blog and today writing the 34th post gives me the immense pleasure. I was thinking of starting a blog for some time but was not getting motivated with its idea, then my niece started her blog “Smita’s Desk” which somehow inspired me to start this and from then onwards it has gathered 30 followers, 76 comments and few awards till date.

Before Marriage I used to avoid cooking and in these 5 years I have started enjoying cooking and all the credit goes to my husband  who has always supported me in this and every venture and praised even my worst cooking.  

Many Thanks to all my followers who have been there on the blog and have supported it even when I couldn’t write a post for 3-4 months in 2010 year end due to excessive travelling and out of net connections. I would also like to thank all the people who visited my blog and left a constructive comment on all my posts. It was really encouraging to see people coming in and leaving their valued feedback.

I have been away from the blog for some time in between and couldn’t write posts. I wished that my first blog birthday post to be the 50th post but somehow couldn’t manage to do it but today i promise to compensate that in the coming year and hope to celebrate the second birthday with the 100th post.

On this first birthday, I would like to introduce something new in this blog. As this is a recipe blog, I am adding some different ways of decorating salad plates. I am going to attach some snaps of my salad plates which are very easy to make and doesn’t need any explanation on how to make it, but will give various ways on presenting the salad.

Many friends contact me personally and appreciate the blog but the right way to appreciate a blogger is to leave a comment or even better to become a follower if you really like it. I would request all my visitors to leave me a comment on the posts they like much or less.

I would like to especially thank people for commenting one of my post “Tomato Penne Pasta” which alone gathered 26 comments and inspired me to do my best.

Thank you again to all the regular readers of Suvidha’s Kitchen and lookout for my next post which will start a new feature “Salad Decoration” adding a feather to its cap.
