This tangy crunchy salad is a treat for tomato lovers. Not only it’s an excellent source of folic acid (vitamin B9) which keeps anaemia at bay, but also rich in vitamin B1 (thiamin), vitamin B3 (Niacin) and fibre due to the addition of walnuts and sesame seeds. Walnuts are also rich in vitamin E and omega 3-fatty acids which are considered to be a good source of fat.
