Green salad with Sweet Corn and Olives | Awards Again

I am obsessed with salads these days. I go to any restaurants and you see me looking at the salad recipes available. Nothing can beat a fresh refreshing salad with a homemade simple dressing in one hand and “Confessions of a Shopaholic” in the other hand :). This is one of my favie mainly because it includes sweet corn and olives.

~* What U Need*~
Cabbage – ½ cup

Lettuce leaves - 10

Green capsicum – ¼ cup
Boiled Corn kernels – ½ cup
Pitted black olives – 2 tbsp

Apple cider Vinegar – 1 tbsp
Mayonnaise – 2 tbsp

Olive oil – 2 tbsp

Salt - to taste
Pepper – a pinch
Red wine – 1 tbsp (optional)

How I Made It
Chop the cabbage, lettuce and green capsicum to a not so big or not so small size.
In a large bowl, add the chopped veggies, olives, vinegar, mayonnaise, olive oil, salt, pepper and red wine.

Give it a stir.
Serve immediately. Sit back and relish the freshness.

We had this with a glass of fig n honey milkshake and it was divine.
