‘Healthy salads’ can sometimes be boring, and you might end up wishing for a richer dressing! But this one is sure to be a refreshing change. This healthy basket of veggies makes a healthy, fibre-rich treat that helps regulate blood sugar levels.
A perfect food to satisfy small hunger pangs, it keeps you away from binge-eating. I have used a sugar substitute in place of sugar and also used less oil in the dressing. Oregano and pepper impart a mexican flavour to this salad. And the best part is, you do not have to necessarily abide by the selection of veggies used in this recipe – just go with whatever is handy!
- Put the lettuce, capsicum and baby corn in a vesselful of ice-cold water for half an hour. This will make them crisp.
- Drain, wrap in a muslin cloth and refrigerate till ready to use.
- Just before serving, combine all the vegetables and the bean sprouts and carrots in a bowl, add the dressing and toss well.
- Serve immediately.
- It is highly recommended that this recipe be relished by diabetics only occasionally and in small quantities. This is just a mere ‘treat’ and does not qualify for a regular diabetic menu.
