This preparation of the salad is good for high blood pressure patients. To control blood pressure it is recommended that you consume a diet low in saturated fat and rich in a variety of produce, whole-grains and low fat dairy. Healing nutrients include calcium, dietary fibre, magnesium, pottasium and Vitamin C. Also heart friendly fats such as monounsaturated and omega-3s are recommended. Avoid harmful saturated fats and trans fats which are found in animal based foods and commercially prepared foods as these clog your arteries.
