With summer still on, here are my top five salad dressing that can level up your salads. I love adding citrus juice instead of vinegar, which adds flavor to the dressing. Fresh herbs like dill, parsley, basil etc. are a great add on too.

Saffron shrikhand cheesecake

Here is a yogurt-based dessert that is light and perfectly sweet on the palate. Shrikhand is a healthy dessert loved by everyone. The rich flavors of saffron and cardamom make it unique. This dessert is my little contribution to the 75th Independence day celebration of India. 

Watermelon margarita

never met a soul who dislikes watermelon. We love snacking on it as a fruit or in a salad. The juice gets loads of makeovers with fruits, soda, or juice of different fruits. It is compatible with different fruit juices, especially citrus, and works beautifully. I love using the clear juice in mocktails. Watermelon margarita and cosmopolitan are a few of my favorites.

Cheese can be the hero, a prop, or garnish in a picture. Cheese seems to have a soothing effect in a colorful frame. I had some fun and some tense moments while shooting with cheese. It is a slightly tricky ingredient to work with; however, the results are beautiful when done right.

Mango ginger limeade

tarted with something else in mind and ended up creating a perfect summer drink with a zing. Mango ginger limeade is sweet, fizzy, and has a kick from the ginger. I wanted to prepare iced tea with some leftover mango puree but instead prepared limeade.

Grapefruit honey lemonade

ummertime calls for loads of refreshing glasses of lemonade. Especially during the summer vacation after a short trip to the pool, requests for lemonade are difficult to ignore. Grapefruit honey lemonade is one of my favorite ways of enjoying lemonade.
