Mission Capsicum

~ Mission Capsicum ~

Yesterday I ran out of my veggie stock ,
what was left in the refrigerator was capsicum
& carrots . It surely sounds little funny to make a
salad only using capsicums !! but being aware of its
great degree of nutritional value I decided to go
ahead and challenge my creative juices.
Seeing the salad platter my daughter hesitated for a
moment but soon started munching the crispy greens !!
My salad Mission Accomplished !!!!!
Lol - ' The sense of sight succeeded over the sense of taste '

Turtle plz ....

Capsicum , carrot, peas, mayonnaise n nigella seeds

Scorpion Salad !!!!
