  1. In a large bowl, gently toss all of the ingredients together (except salt & black salt). Refrigerate.
  2. Add salt & black salt just before serving. Mix well & serve.
Tips:
Beetroot adds red color to the entire salad. If you do not wish the salad to have red color, you may skip the beetroot or add it as garnishing (as seen in my picture).
