A salad with a twist, that’s what this is! Many tasty salads are not as healthy because they use fat-laden dressings. But, this innovative recipe uses a pulpy fruit like muskmelon as the dressing, together with peppy spices and herbs.

A lively medley of veggies, fruits and bean sprouts matches the exoticness of the dressing, by contributing varied textures and flavours to the salad.

Rich in fibre and iron from bean sprouts and antioxidants like vitamins A and C from the other veggies, this delicious Lettuce and Apple Salad is a tasty way to beat stress and fight harmful free radicals.

This fibre-rich snack will keep you full for some time, and is ideal to have as a mid-meal snack.
