  1. Just yummy.. see mine : Olivier - Russian Salad you can modify ingredients according to your taste too :) like your recipe!

  2. You can make this healthier by substituting mayo for olive oil. For more health and taste, use a fresh lemon or orange juice with just a touch of olive oil. And of course, no cream.

    Pasta made from quinoa or oats is another health boost. And better sweeteners would be stevia, local honey, pure maple syrup, or brown rice syrup. There are easy ways to make things healthier. ;)

    Capsicum: I'm assuming is cayenne or a hot pepper ?.

    1. Hey dear, thanx for ur suggestions. Everyone has different likings acc to regions and taste..As mentioned in the intro, I have already told that I have altered the original recipe, which is loved by most ppl here. Capsicum is a bell pepper and not hot pepper. U can google it for the pic, I haven't tried honey as a sweetener. will try some day. Ply refer to my section salads,as I have shared other salads too in which I have used olive oil which are a lighter version :) Enjoy
