Salad Platter

Shadiyon wala (Wedding style) salad platter. Everyone love that and want to know how they made that yummy colorful salads we eat in our weddings in Pakistan. So many requests for this so I decided to make it at a dinner party at my home.

Remembering those tastes and colors, textures I made 6 types of salads in it. Not exactly same to those but trust me better than those 🙂

You can add or subtract any veges or fruits which are not in season to those which are in season or use tin fruits. I will tell you different variations with recipes so you can make these more better 🙂

Previously I made many salad recipes for my blog and dinners but never make it this way …. So after finishing I was looking at this plate and thinking ….. (Aj kis ki shadi hy … haha 😉 ) But I am really happy to make this awesome recipe …… A show stopper recipe I must say so do try it and give your feed backs 🙂
