‘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!
