Muskmelon, Pear and Apple Salad in low-cal curd based parsley dressing is a yummy treat for diabetics and others as well. The apple and pear in this recipe provide a good dose of fibre, while the muskmelon provides the required Vitamin A! What is more, the irresistibly tasty curd-parsley dressing too is made suitable for health-watchers in this version, which replaces cream with thick low-fat curds.
