Salads are very much important dishes for our daily day life and I think that I need not to explain its taste and significance to all because all are using it on daily basis with some other foods. I also like salad very much and I am making different tasty salads by using vegetables and fruits. We can make this dish with anything which you like and taste will change based on the ingredients and methods. Different types of salads are there, Vegetable Salads, Fruits Salads and Non-Vegetable salads are the common and most popular salad dishes. Today, I am going to share very popular Onion Salad through this article. Onion is very healthy vegetable and we all are using it with other dishes to increase the taste. It can use with any types of food as a side dish but this Salad can't use as the main food like some other Salads. Usually it is serving as the side dish with Biriyani, Rice, Ghee Rice and Fried Rice. I would like to have this Salad with non-vegetarian dishes such as Beef, Chicken and Pork dishes and vegetable dishes such as Red Lentils Curry and Black Chick Peas Curry. We can use Onion on daily basis to improve health and Onion Salad is the best solution to have it daily. Here, I used Bird's Eye Chilli as the spice to make this Salad because it can give special and variety taste to this Salad comparing other spices. Bird's Eye Chilli also has a lot of health benefits so we can get the benefits of both these ingredient together through this Salad. Lime Juice and White Vinegar combination is also helping to increase the taste of this dish. To get softness rub it well by using hands.
