Lighter shades always rejuvenate and lowers the volume of all levels of complexities, be it light shades of color that refreshes and gives natural feels or the clouds forming the serape to cover the rays of flashy sun, pushing us to fall in love with the twilight and relaxing weather, the soft shimmer of rays draw us near and closer to the beaches or simply pressing for an enjoyable long ride.

Not always Khichdi or simplicity in food can be a solution for light foods, demands of food are endless. So today I have come up with a healthy and delicious bowl of heavenly salad straight from the houses of Russia! Russian food has always been listed high on my charts and this salad is a hit spot of taste. Olivier salad or Russian salad is all about the mixture of any veggies you die for plus a valuable combination of beans, corns, fruits and of course dips! Add red pasta, noodles and sweet and sour fruits to complement the veggies. I love the amazing creamy bites of vivid tastes that don’t make me feel at all heavy from the insides. Russian salad as Saturday dinner with phenomenal episodes of Supernatural makes the perfect end of our weekend! Try this at home and thank us later!
