Zucchini Salad

This salad combines zucchini and the goodness of apple cider vinegar. Zucchini is a very low calorie vegetable, rich in B-complex vitamins and vitamin C. Its peel provides the much deficient fibre.

A vinaigrette made of apple cider vinegar is not just the soul of the salad (taste-wise) but has a world of health benefits. It improves insulin sensitivity and helps to lower the blood sugar response after a meal.

It helps in weight loss by increasing satiety and lowering glucose and insulin levels.
