This is simple, easy to prepare, healthy diabetic friendly salad. I made it last night as i wanted to cut down on chapatis (Indian flatbread) and instead have something more nutritious and satiating. I have altered my workout and diet plan and am reducing carbs gradually and increasing good fat ,protein and leafy greens in my diet so that’s how this salad happened! 😁
