Packed with flavour and good health, this exotic salad features apples and cooked kidney beans dressed in a creamy guacamole dressing.

Chopped tomatoes come together with ripe avocadoes to give this guacamole dressing an extraordinary flavour and mouth-feel. To get the classic effect, make sure you choose ripe avocadoes.

A dash of lemon juice gives this salad a tangy touch while spring onions give an exciting crunch. Apart from giving you a memorable culinary experience, this salad is also very wholesome due to the careful combination of ingredients like apples and rajma, which are packed with nutrients and fiber.

The high content of mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) in this salad avoids a sudden spike in blood sugar levels, making this suitable for diabetics .

**Disclaimer:
It is highly recommended that this recipe be relished by diabetics only occasionally and in small quantities. This is just a mere ‘treat’ and does not qualify for a regular diabetic menu.
