Indian Summer Salad and Dressing

Indian Summer Salad and Dressing

This bold and exotic salad makes the most of your garden’s summer vegetables, paired mildly with the spices of India and the combination of crunchy multigrain noodles, peanuts, raisins and dried peas from Marjans’ Bhuja Original Snack Mix, as your topping; and it’s fantastic summer fare! I just found this topping in the grocery store and had to create a homemade salad dressing that complements it’s flavors. I could eat the topping mix all day, so I figured these flavors would make a fanciful and delicious salad for hot summer days.
