Carefully chosen ingredients like green grapes, cucumber and cabbage make this salad a really "cool" one. Unlike other dressings, this one is made of curds and flavoured with basil and lemon that add zest to its already unique flavour. Low fat curds provide protein and calcium, making this salad good for strengthening and maintaining healthy bones.
