This salad is set apart by its extremely unusual dressing, which can be served separately or mixed inside. Ensure that you select ripe avocado as it is pulpy and has a unique flavour. This tangy salad also has an enticing crispness, thanks to the lettuce. Rich in iron, calcium and fibre, the careful combination of ingredients like apple, lettuce, rajma and corn makes this salad both interesting and wholesome.
