Garam Masala Salad Recipe

Garam Masala Salad

By caramelizing onions and garlic in a little oil and a lot of flavor imparted by garam masala, the vegetables themselves become the dressing on this salad.

Simple, quick, yet packed with taste and a little spice, this salad goes well on its own as a snack, or as a base for a full meal, served alongside a protein and a grain.
