This spring salad recipe combines boiled vegetables, such as green beans and potatoes, with raw vegetables, such as tomatoes. This makes it more tolerable for those who suffer from dental deficiencies. Like all salads, this is a very healthy dish, especially beneficial for:
- The metabolism, as it supplies minerals, trace minerals, and vitamins, all necessary for growth. Besides, all the ingredients in this spring salad recipe are alkalizing and cause the elimination of uric acid and other waste in the blood.
- Diabetes because green beans have specific anti-diabetic effects and prevent excess glucose in the blood. Besides, peas and potatoes are well tolerated by people with diabetes, thanks to their high fiber content.
- The arteries and the heart, due to the antioxidants contained in vegetables.
