 The crunch of the lettuce and cabbage, with a sweet touch of the pomegranate, and the  tangy taste of lemon and pepper accompanied by the flavoursome mint makes this recipe a delectable dish! It is very healthy and quick to make too!

Iceberg lettuce are an excellent source of folate and a very good source of vitamin B6 and antioxidants called both of which are needed to keep levels of homocysteine, a potentially dangerous molecule, low. Iceberg lettuce is high in dietary fiber, and contains traces of omega fatty acids, which is important for allover health. Folate is another benefit that iceberg lettuce provides, which helps fight heart disease.Low in saturated fat and cholesterol (practically none) it’s a good source of iron, vitamin B6, K, A, and C.

Pomegranates are not only delicious and beautiful; they’re also one of the most nutritious fruits you can eat. Pomegranates are a great source of potassium, and pomegranate juice contains antioxidants that will help to protect your blood lipids from oxidation. Pomegranate juice may also help to prevent prostate cancer and helps to prevent plaque build up in your arteries.A valuable food remedy for diarrhoea and dysentery.Pomegranate juice with addition of a little saffron is useful in fevers to allay thirst.

Cabbage is very popularly used in Salad dressings, because of its taste and satiety value. Cabbage can be eaten raw or cooked. It can be boiled, steamed, braised, sautéed, stir-fried, and microwaved. It should be cooked until just tender. Overcooking will result in limp, pasty cabbage and produce a very unpleasant smell. Cabbage also stimulates the immune system, kills harmful bacteria, soothes ulcers, and improves circulation. The outer leaves are a good source of vitamin E, making it good for the complexion. Also rich in vitamin C (raw white cabbage contains as much vitamin C as lemon juice) and sulphur, the cabbage is a health food store in a compact edible package. It has wonderful cleansing properties. Raw cabbage cleans the waste from the stomach and upper bowels which improves digestion and reduces constipation.
