Grapes and brahmi salad with lemon mint dressing

grapes and brahmi salad

The sun is still hanging around just making it a tad bit uncertain. Though officially nearing the end of Autumn, the real warmth needed foods still can be held off for a while and the salads continue their trail.
I do enjoy the flavours of brahmi by itself, some of my readers find it bitter. What I would relate it to? for me, there is a  bit of soapy aftertaste.  nothing that is in the lines of bitter though. But there are always ways and means to mask it. Usually, I rely on yoghurt to do that, but, his time around I passed them with some sweet grapes rather than yoghurt to make this quick brahmi salad.

Here are there previously posted Brahmi recipes

The grapes in the  brahmi salad

I love the pop of sweetness from grapes and very often make the sweet-spicy combo of grape salsa.

 This recipe began when I was planning to make the salsa and then saw the fresh Brahmi sitting in the herb collection for the week. Fresh is always first in my list. I did not think twice and chopped them up to add to the salad making it a brahmi salad. The grapes work so well with the cherry tomatoes and the Brahmi creating an explosion of flavours. The nuttiness from the crushed almonds was the crunch factor.

Now the whisked mint lemon dressing, oh my god!!! heavenly!!! This dressing is so simple I am sure it will keep coming up in many recipes I will be trying. 
So here we are.. fresh and easy, try it and let me if you still believe the Brahmi is bitter. Hopefully, I would have changed your mind with this mix of flavours.

You can perhaps use chopped spinach if you have no access to Indian pennywort (gotukola),  it certainly will not be the same but still a great salad to have. Do let us know if you like this salad.

If you would like to try it later, pin it here – Brahmi salad.

Keep in touch and see you soon again.

The salad is a one thing that needs to be on lunch table every single day. This unusual combo of grapes and brahmi looks so appetizing. I am amazed to see the best use of brahmi in salads used by you.

To be honest I have never eaten Brahmi in my life and only read about it in Ayurved or home remedies related books. This dish looks so delicious and nutritious. From where do you buy Brahmi, I really want to try this unique recipe of yours.
