Fresh garden salad is a medley of assorted vegetables tossed in a light dressing. It takes about 20 mins to put it together and tastes delicious on a hot summer afternoon when you really don’t want to eat piping hot sambar and rice. The dressing that goes into it is light and tangy, making it perfect for a salad lunch kind of day. My mom and i are incredible fans of the Garden salad that they serve in Pizza Hut. I know it is weird to love a salad in Pizza Hut but the raw veggies fans that we are, we almost always order this whenever its Pizza Hut time. This recipe is a Pizza Hut Copy Cat recipe of sorts. The only change that i have made to their version is toss in some croutons because i believed that the salad needed more body and well, i needed some buttery carbs. So the croutons went in. In an effort to make justice to our love for the Fresh Garden Salad, here s the recipe! Sharing this at Swathi’s Hearth And Soul Blog Hop

2. You may also add a thinly sliced red onion into your salad if you like. The onion gives a nice sweet crunch.*
