This iron-rich Lettuce and Bean Salad features crisp lettuce and juicy cucumber combined with mealy kidney beans and sumptuous chick peas, perked up with mint and coriander leaves, spring onion whites, etc. Lemon juice boosts the vitamin C content, which in turn ensures maximum absorption of iron. Serve this salad immediately not only to retain the fresh textures, but also to avoid loss of vitamin C.

I have made this recipe, adding extra blanched vegs like carrots as well, and it always turns out yummy. I have always gotten many compliments whenever I make this... It's a must try and extremely healthy and wholesome recipe!
