Corn Veg Salad

On a lazy Saturday, when I had almost nothing to do, I thought of seriously working out and concentrate on my diet regime. Guess what I indulged in Zumba dance, my friend Kaavya suggested me that Zumba involves heavy workout and its the best way to burn your unwanted calories without hitting gym. I worked out for about 20 mins and latter part was all huffing puffing..because its been so long that I really thought of pulling myself into workout. Yippiee I feel light....Of course....dancing to a tune like Shake it like Shammi can shed it...right...Coming back to my post, you know the background as to why all of a sudden I cooked this instead of some elaborate meal. This salad is easy to pack in your lunch box or helps as a quick fix when you are in a hurry or have to run for a meeting or a client call. Try this out.

Thaw frozen corn and keep it aside. Heat oil in a small frying pan and toss sweet corn for about 2-3 mins and keep it aside. Add all the remaining ingredients except sev.  Ensure that all the ingredients are combined well. While serving garnish with Sev and serve immediately.

Chef's notes:
You can butter toss sweet corn which gives nice flavor to your salad. I would recommend this unless you are watching your waist line closely.
Add sesame seeds or peanuts to give that nutty taste to your salad.
You can use cucumber bits and raw mango along with your vegetables. Somehow I do not like Cucumber and I tend to omit it in every possible way.
