Garden salad with Yogurt Mustard dressing

As you all know salads can be made of different ingredients.I prepared a green salad for dinner to cut down some calorie intake at nights.
I have used limited veggies or can say like those are available in my refrigerator.
The dressing has been altered with some ingredients to cut calories. For a mayonnaise & sour cream I used home made low fat yogurt.
Ingredients :

1 cup of Shredded Carrot 
1 Cup of Shredded Red Cabbage 
1/2 cup chopped Onion 
1 cup of chopped Lettuce
1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes 

1/2 cup Low fat free yogurt  
2 Tbs Lemon juice 
1 Tbs Mustard powder
1 clove of Garlic minced
1/2 Tbs Red chili flakes
1/2 Tbs ground black pepper
Salt acc to taste

Take a big bowl with all the veggies mixed in it expect tomatoes. 

For Tomatoes
Cut cherry tomatoes in to half n place them on a baking pan. Drizzle a little of Olive oil. Bake tomatoes @ 350 degrees for 15mins.

For Dressing 
Take a bowl n mix up all the dressing ingredients together to a smooth paste. 

Take the tomatoes out of oven. Let them cool for few mins. Mix up dressing and veggies together. 
* Cover the salad bowl and allow it to sit in a refrigerator for a tasty salad.

Out come: After tasting it my hubby said let's skip dosa's for dinner & replace them with Salad :)
