Pear, apple and paneer salad in low-cal thousand island 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 low-fat paneer provides the required calcium minus scary fat! what is more, the irresistibly tasty thousand island dressing too is made suitable for health-watchers in this version, which replaces cream with thick curds.
