This unusual salad has pear as its main ingredient as pear, and is also dressed in the pulp of the same fruit. A dash of mustard added to the dressing gives this salad a tongue-tingling flavour and rich aroma.

In addition, this fruit combines a medley of greens, veggies and sprouts, including spinach, bean sprouts, carrots and capsicum. You can exercise your creativity and make your own creations by adding other crispy vegetables like cabbage too.

This high-fibre Pear, Spinach and Bean Sprouts Salad is not only a treat for your palate, but also keeps your heart healthy. It is high in potassium and low in sodium, which helps maintain blood pressure too.
