Cucumber, Capsicum and Celery Salad, is a delightful combination of fresh vegetables, fruits and curds which makes this salad hard to resist. The low-fat curd dressing is delicately flavoured with basil and mustard powder. The fruits, vegetables and low-fat curds have few calories, but contains a lot of fibre. Such salads should be had before a meal as they are filling, to avoid overeating during the other courses that follow.

A good combination of fruits and vegetables in a curd based dressing. I don't like pineapple so I added red capsicum.
