Summer Salad - lettuce, pineapple and grapes

Summer is here, with a bang ! Its 41 deg C / 105 F right now and this is just the beginning of summer... April is bad and May is unbearable here. I am all set, ready to pack my bags and head to Bangalore, in the next couple of weeks ! Here, the humidity is really low and its scorching hot, almost feel your skin burning away.

This dry and hot weather calls for something light and cold, like this really simple salad.

Mangoes have also started coming into the market. The very famous Alphonso mangoes are exorbitantly priced right now. There are a few locally grown ones, which my son insisted that I buy. A mango milkshake with this salad was our lunch yesterday !

There isn't really a recipe for this. I just tossed the lettuce, chunks of pineapple, halved black grapes, pieces of red peppers and drizzled the dressing over it. Topped it with some toasted sunflower seeds.

For the dressing -
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp olive oil
1 crushed garlic clove
salt
pepper
1 tbsp honey
Combine and mix well

Healthy salad interesting dressing. I'd have never considered using garlic with fruits, I should try it to experience the flavour.
