For today's Potluck Party, my partner was Nivedita Thadani and I had to try her recipe which she made on 10th May.Potato and Kidney Beans Salad using Hung Curd.http://niveditaskitchen.blogspot.ie/2013/05/potato-and-kidney-beans-salad-with-hung.html
 Salads may be served at any point during meal, so it could be Appetizer or side dish or main course as portion with slices or pieces of Chicken Breast or Beef- for non veg eaters.

The word "salad" comes from the French salade of the same meaning, from the Latin salata (salty), from sal (salt). In English, the word first appears as "salad" or "sallet" in the 14th century.
