Lettuce apple salad

Refreshing salad with a flavorful yoghurt dressing

This salad is most healthy and nutritious with all the good stuff right in here. Here are some interesting facts about the goodies used here and six reasons why you should eat this-

Did you know lettuce is the second most popular vegetable in US (potatoes are the first) and the oldest one ever known.

'An apple a day keeps the doctor away', well here's another way you can relish it today....

Walnuts used in this salad have the omega 3 fatty acids which are a very essential fat that we all need especially women. Did you know researchers found that teenagers who ate these nuts in their salads on a regular basis were less prone to acne as opposed to those who ate other nuts such as almonds so if you have a teenager at home let them try this out...

Scallions are free of sodium, fat and cholesterol, and provide dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium and other key nutrients. They are low calorie adding abundant flavor to foods.

The yoghurt dressing has less fat, you could use low fat yoghurt and you get the dose of calcium in it as against mayonaise or other fat containing dressings.

Cardomom referred to as the "spice of paradise" gives this dressing and this salad a very distinct taste. Cardomom has antimicrobial and antiseptic properties and is good for digestive health.

1 cup chopped iceberg lettuce
Half and apple sliced length wise and a quarter cubed
¼ cup scallions chopped
3 tbsp walnuts chopped

3 tbsp yoghurt
1/2 tsp sugar or equivalent sweet and lo
1 tsp cardamom powder
Mix all the three

Arrange the salad by spreading the lettuce on the plate. Top it with the sliced apple and the cubes in the center. Sprinkle the chopped scallion and walnuts and serve with the dressing
