Healthy Beetroot Salad

Health is wealth. Very true. So today I am here with a health basket. A combination of various nutrients, salads give various health benefits. I have used beetroot, cucumber, tomatoes and potatoes in this recipe. To give it a crunch I added pumpkin and melon seeds. Beetroot as we all know are packed with nutrients and are a great source of fiber, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Cucumber are low in calories and high on antioxidants. Whereas Potatoes contain significant amount  of fibre,vitamin B6 ,  potassium and vitamin C. Coming to Tomatoes, they are the highest source of Lycopin which has various health benefits. Seeds are a great sources of fiber and also contain healthy monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats and many important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

With so many health benefits ' Salad khana to banta hai.'
