And this is the best time to have them raw. Nothing can compare to that fresh juice or that crunch.
I try to put in as much veggies as possible into anything that am cooking. Or have them as a salad.
I like macaronis ... but not the usual way .... messed up in a gooey white sauce (which I do like once in a while) or with lumpy, elastic cheese ( which I positively hate).
So I make them my way .... will post sometime.
And if I have some already boiled macaroni in the fridge .... I make a salad for lunch ( anything to not to cook for only myself ).
And here's my salad. You can add black olives too. I do not like them ... so did not.
And if you like garlic ... can add a very finely chopped clove. Nonveggies can add slivers or cubes of boiled chicken or cubed hard boiled eggs.
I added some toasted bread croutons .... loved that dry crunch with the juicy ones. :-)
Need : Boiled macaroni or any pasta, raw fresh vegetables like carrots, spring onion, green peas, tomatoes, chopped green chillies, lime juice, bread croutons, olive oil, salt and sugar to taste.
How to : Chop the veggies. Shell the peas. Toss everything together with a dash of lime juice and lots of olive oil.
Done ! :-)
Another closer look. :-)
