Healthy Vegetable Salad

I read in a magazine that green salads not only fill your stomach well but also help you reduce weight. In this healthy salad recipe, I use sprouted green gram along with raw vegetables and a choice of spices to enhance the taste. My husband relishes this salad and it turns out to be a good appetizer.

You can have just this salad for dinner. This will help you reduce weight drastically.
