Red Onion 3 medium sliced
Small Green Hot chilies 3-4 sliced diagonally
Juice of 2 medium Lime Freshly squeezed.
Salt To Taste

Add the salt to the chili sliced. Add some sliced onion. Mix well – use a spoon or hand to squeeze the juices out of the chilies. This works well when mixed with salt. Also squeeze the juices out of some (about 1 Tbsp) onion slices. Mix in the rest of the onion. Add the lime juice mix well. Let stand covered for 10-15 minutes.

Note: Amount of chilies may be increased or decreased to toleration.

hai sindu,
ur salad recipies seem to be good, i'll try these and let u know.
do u know what oregano is?i've come across this ingredient in some salad recipies esp in greek salad, is it a flavour?

Its very assertive and peppery with hints of pine. Chop leaves roughly or finely and add early in cooking. Oregano usually known as the “pizza herb”. You can create greek flavors when u pair it with lemon and garlic.

U get it everywhere. :) Hope this helps....

When you make salads, you can add few soaked chick peas, that will taste wonderful.
